Also pleading not guilty to the charges in the indictment was the company's former head of worldwide sales, Stephen Richards.

Each faces a maximum &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/accidents/ 21/96/382/13711_Nichols.html' target=_blank>prison sentence of 100 years if convicted.

In a statement issued by his attorneys on Wednesday, Kumar denied any wrongdoing and said he expected to be exonerated.
