Man accused of assault on 6-year-old enters plea

KINGMAN - A Kingman man pleaded not guilty to molestation and two charges of sexual conduct with a 6-year-old girl.

Brian Keith Mattie, 31, entered the plea for the Class 2 felonies before Mohave County Judge James Chavez Friday before Chavez set a case management conference for 2:30 p.m. on April 6.

Kingman Police detectives arrested Mattie on Feb. 28 after the victim revealed information to school authorities that led to suspicions that she had been sexually molested. The incident is alleged to have occurred on Feb. 27 at a residence in the 3300 block Boquillas Road.

Mattie was booked into the Mohave County Jail and is being held on a $200,000 bond.

He faces a maximum of 10 years for each charge if it is deemed non-dangerous and 21 years for each charge if it is determined to be dangerous.
