A Catholic priest pleaded not guilty to two counts of child molestation that allegedly occurred 30 years ago when he was assigned to St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church.

The attorney for Gregory Kareta, 79, said Monday he would ask to have the charges dismissed.

Kareta, recently of Avenal, remained free on $50,000 bond.

He is accused of molesting an 11-year-old altar boy during the summers of 1973 and 1974.
