DENVER (AP) -- A former Denver sheriff's deputy accused of helping an inmate escape has pleaded not guilty.

Matthew Andrews entered his plea Monday.

Andrews is accused of helping Felix Trujillo walk out of Denver's new jail in a sheriff's deputy's baseball cap and jacket and then driving him away in April.

Investigators say Andrews told co-workers he because he'd been threatened and had been told there was a contract out on him and his family.

Last week, Trujillo was sentenced to 34 years in prison after pleading guilty to both the escape and the robbery he was in jail for at the time of his escape.
