SALT LAKE CITY -- A 67-year-old Springville man is pleading not guilty to charges of rape and running a prostitution ring inside his home.
A district court also charged Kenneth Michael Bond with aggravated sexual assault and sex with a minor.
Court documents show Bond operated a brothel in his Springville home from January 2011 through July 2011.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports Bond allegedly paid a man to have sex with a 15-year-old girl and offered teen girls money, iPhones and manicures to have sex with various men.
Bond allegedly did "DNA body washes" on a 15-year-old girl to wipe away evidence of prostituted sex.
2008 court documents show Bond repeatedly threatened a teen girl with a handgun when she refused sexual demands.
A five-day trial is slated to begin June 5.
