HINDS COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A former band director has pleaded not guilty to a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. 

Ben Tuberville, 31, was not in court Wednesday. His attorney entered a plea of not guilty on his behalf. 

Tuberville was fired from Rankin County Schools and arrested in Clinton for inappropriate communication with a minor. 

Authorities say in July, Tuberville used a voice messaging program called Voxer to converse with a 15-year-old who lives in Clinton. 

A trial date has been set for December 5th.
