MOUNT VERNON, Wash. (AP) -- A man accused of raping a developmentally disabled boy at the Mount Vernon Boys and Girls Club pleaded not guilty Thursday in Skagit County Superior Court.

The 22-year-old, Eduardo Martinez of Burlington, worked at the club.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (http://bit.ly/rvq6Bb ) he was first accused in June when the 13-year-old boy told his foster mother he had been raped at the club.

A police investigation led to additional charges of immoral communication with a minor for incidents involving four other boys.

Martinez was arrested at his home Sept. 24 and booked into the Skagit County Jail. He has no prior criminal history.
