MARTINEZ -- An Antioch man charged with raping and molesting a 16-year-old girl and paying her to appear in child porn pleaded not guilty to nine felony counts Thursday in Contra Costa Superior Court.

Timothy Ray Hackett, 46, entered his plea through his attorney, Christopher Martin. Charges against Hackett include unlawful sexual intercourse, forcible rape and exhibiting a minor in pornography. He is being held on $255,000 bail.

Hackett, a former Oakland city employee, was arrested at his home Aug. 1.

Prosecutors allege the five incidents occurred in June and July with the same Jane Doe. Prosecutors do not know how the two came to know each other but say they are not related. The girl originally balked at being filmed during sex acts, prosecutors say, but consented when Hackett offered her money.

Hackett's next court appearance will be Sept. 24 in Pittsburg.
