A convicted murderer living in a mobile home park in Acton has pleaded not guilty to four felony counts of rape at the Michael D. Antonovich Antelope Valley Court, a court official said.

Arthur Edward Lindsey, 73, appeared in court Friday and entered a plea of not guilty to two counts of rape of an unconscious person, one count of oral copulation of an unconscious person and one count of sexual penetration of an unconscious person, he said.

Lindsey, who remains in custody at the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles, is scheduled to appear back in the Antelope Valley court June 19.

Deputies with the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station arrested him last week. His bail is set at $1.4 million.

Lindsey, who lives at the White Rock Lake mobile home park on Soledad Canyon Road, was convicted of murder during the commission of rape in Indiana in 1968, according to the Meagan’s Law website posted for registered sex offenders by the California Department of Justice.

He is listed as a “low to moderate” risk on the Meagan’s Law website.

Lindsey pleaded no contest in 2005 for having failed to register as a sex offender, the court official said, and served four years in an Indiana state prison for that offense.
