PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A man will go to trial this fall after telling a federal judge Thursday that he did not seduce young boys into sending him sexually explicit pictures and videos.  

David Milliner says he is not guilty of the 16 charges against him, including soliciting, manufacturing and possessing child pornography. 

Federal authorities say the 49-year-old pretended to be a rich prince living in a Beverly Hills mansion, and through social media accounts like Instagram, they say he coaxed at least four preteen boys into sending him sexually explicit videos and pictures.

Milliner was charged in April and remains in federal custody.

He is set for trial in October. If convicted, he could spend the rest of his life in prison.

A request for comment from his attorney has not been returned.
