Hey Dad star pleads not guilty to 11 historic sex offences

AUSTRALIAN actor Robert Hughes has pleaded not-guilty to 11 historic sex offences.

Four women have told police they were abused by Hughes in their younger years, when he was playing the lead role of Martin Kelly in the popular family show Hey Dad!

The 64-year-old has maintained his innocence since the charges were laid last year.

A formal not-guilty plea was entered at Sydney's Downing District Court on Monday.

A trial date is expected to be set later this month.
