A U.S. Marine Corps recruiter in Riverside County, Calif., has been accused of pimping a 14-year-old girl. Police were also looking into whether he used the girl to entice possible Marine recruits.

Staff Sgt. Bryan Damone Cunningham pleaded not guilty to seven felonies, including felony pimping and kidnapping. Police in Orange, Calif., said they discovered the teenage girl in a car with Cunningham and two other men, ages 18 and 19, described as potential Marine recruits.

The girl, who has since been returned to her parents, told police that she'd met Cunningham online and had sex with all three men, authorities said.

The two potential Marine recruits face felony charges of having sex with a minor.

Cunningham is being held on $1 million bail and has a court hearing June 18.
