A former UCLA Medical Center employee plead not guilty to charges that she sold information from actress Farrah Fawcett's medical records to a celebrity gossip tabloid.

U.S. attorney's spokesman Thom Mrozek said Lawanda Jackson entered the plea at her arraignment Monday in U.S. District Court.

Jackson is charged with illegally accessing Fawcett's medical file and selling information about the actress' cancer treatment for $4,600 to the National Enquirer.

A state investigation found last month that UCLA hospital workers had inappropriately accessed records of 1,041 patients, including celebrities such as Britney Spears, since 2003.
