Maurice Carroll, the owner of an unlicensed process serving company at the center of a court scandal, pleaded not guilty in District Court on Monday.
An Oct. 4 trial was set in the courtroom of District Judge Elissa Cadish.
Carroll, who runs On Scene Mediations, was indicted last week on 35 felony counts, including perjury, stemming from the filing of 17 alleged false affidavits of service in May and June.
The 41-year-old former Las Vegas police officer is accused of lying in the sworn affidavits when he claimed to have served defendants with copies of court papers in Justice Court lawsuits filed by Richland Holdings. The affidavits allowed the debt collection agency to obtain default judgments against the defendants after they failed to respond to the lawsuits.
Vilisia Coleman, 46, the office manager for On Scene Mediations, has been charged in a separate criminal complaint on allegations that she lied in affidavits in cases involving Richland Holdings.
Police believe On Scene Mediations has operated without a license since 2003.
