Church organist pleads accused of sexual abuse

WATERBURY, Conn. -- A former church organist from Naugatuck has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and child pornography charges involving girls he met at a Derby church.

Robert Nelson, 50, made his plea Wednesday in Superior Court. He has been charged with five counts of sexual assault, employing a minor in an obscene performance, possession of child pornography, providing alcohol to minors and risk of injury to a minor.

Police said the assaults began in 2000 and lasted through this year.

Nelson remains free on $500,000 bond and Judge Frank Iannotti Wednesday ordered Nelson not to have any contact with his four accusers or any children under the age of 16.
