WASHINGTON - Accused White House fence-jumper Omar J. Gonzalez has pleaded not guilty to charges that he ran into the presidential mansion while carrying a knife.

Gonzalez's lawyer entered the plea on behalf of his client in a proceeding Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson.

A three-count federal grand jury indictment issued Tuesday accuses Gonzalez of unlawfully entering a restricted building while carrying a deadly weapon, a federal charge. He also was indicted in the Sept. 19 incident on two violations of District of Columbia law - carrying a dangerous weapon outside a home or business and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Following Gonzalez's arrest, investigators recovered more than 800 rounds of ammunition, a machete and two hatchets from his car.
