on April 26, 2014 10:19 AM

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas has pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor charges.

Alison Ernst entered the pleas late Wednesday in Las Vegas federal court to counts of violence against a person and trespassing.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach found that Ernst, 36, was a flight risk and danger to the community and ordered her to remain in federal custody.

He appointed two federal public defenders to represent her and set a June 25 trial date.

Ernst is charged with bypassing security to enter the Mandalay Bay resort ballroom where Clinton was speaking April 10. The shoe missed Clinton, and Ernst immediately surrendered to authorities.
