LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Bullitt County deputy jailer pleaded not guilty Monday to sexually abusing a minor.

Steve Plessinger is charged with first degree sexual abuse of a victim under 12 and first degree sodomy.

The Bullitt County Sheriff's Office says Plessinger admitted to sexual acts with a young girl from the time she was 11 until she was 13.

She is now 15.

Plessinger was questioned and arrested in late February after detectives got a tip from Child Protective Services.

Plessinger is being held in custody in lieu of a $100,000 bond. He has been employed by the Bullitt County Jail since 2008.
