BENTONVILLE — A former Arkansas daycare worker pleaded not guilty Wednesday to sexually assaulting two children.
Nathan Jack Clemons, 24, of Rogers has been arrested three times and also pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting another student at Mary's Little Lamb Preschool in Bentonville.
. Wednesday's plea is in connection with two additional students.
Clemons was free on $75,000 bond in connection with the first two arrests, but his bond was set at $300,000 for the third arrest. He was being held at the Benton County jail Friday afternoon, records show.
Benton County Circuit Judge Brad Karren denied a request from Kim Weber, Clemons' attorney, to reduce the bond.
Tyler Williams, deputy prosecutor, previously told the judge the sexual assaults of two of the children are on video, and the parents of the third boy came forward with their concerns.
The children were interviewed at the Children's Advocacy Center of Benton County, according to court documents.
Stuart Cearley, chief deputy prosecutor, said police are still reviewing video from the preschool, and Clemons could face additional charges.
A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for 8 a.m. Nov. 6.
Clemons worked in 2015 for a boys ranch in Jasper County, Mo., according to the affidavit. He was accused of touching children's legs and feet and talking about self-gratification, sex and his history of being abused as a child, according to the affidavit.
Clemons also worked for a school district in Galena, Kan., where he was accused of taking a photograph of a child and sending it to a friend with a lewd comment about the child, the document states.
The Jasper County sheriff's office investigated Clemons in 2012 and 2013 for having inappropriate online conversations with minors including a 13-year-old, according to the affidavit.
Clemons wasn't arrested in connection with the previous allegations.
He faces up to 60 years in prison if convicted on all three counts.
