A state parole agent pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Thursday to charges that he stole more than $3,000 from a female parolee, authorities said.

Robert Earl Wilson, 53, was charged with taking the money from the woman while she was incarcerated, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.

The woman authorized Wilson to withdraw the funds from her bank account last year so that money could be transferred to her jail account, prosecutors said.

Wilson is scheduled for a preliminary hearing April 6 at the Criminal Courts Building in downtown Los Angeles.
