LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Katt Williams has pleaded not guilty to a robbery charge filed after a photographer accused the comedian of stealing her camera.

District attorney's spokeswoman Shiara Davila-Morales said Williams entered the plea Wednesday and was ordered to return to court Feb. 3 for a scheduling hearing.

Williams was charged along with Death Row Records founder Suge Knight with taking the camera as the photographer tried to take a picture in Beverly Hills on Sept. 5. Knight has also pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The 43-year-old Williams has starred in several comedy specials and appeared in films. He could face up to seven years in prison if convicted.
