Mark Holm, former Young Life youth director in Cambridge, has pleaded not guilty to three counts of third degree criminal sexual conduct. He entered his plea on Wednesday, Jan. 5 and will now stand trial in April trial. Holm has been relased from jail.

Holm, 54 of Stanchfield, was charged on Oct. 29 with allegedly having sex with a 17 year-old girl who was in his Young Life group. Young Life is a non-denominational Christian ministry, and Holm was the director in the Cambridge chapter.

Originally, bail for Holm was set at $500,000 without conditions or $100,000 with conditions by Judge P. Hunter Anderson.

In court last week, Judge Thomas Hayes reduced the conditional bail to $25,000.

A pre-trial conference was set for March 25 and the jury trial to begin April 18.
