BATON ROUGE - A former Baton Rouge police officer told a state judge he is innocent of felony charges that accuse him of falsifying misdemeanor summonses while he was on the force.

Derek Burns has pleaded not guilty to first-degree injuring of public records and malfeasance. Both offenses carry up to five years in prison.

Judge Chip Moore scheduled a status hearing in the case for June 20.

The 29-year-old was arrested Sept. 6 and fired in November.

He had worked with the Baton Rouge Police Department for six years.
