GULFPORT -- An Ocean Springs man has pleaded not guilty to four counts of wire fraud and a smuggling charge in a federal case that alleges he illegally imported a car made in Japan. 

 

The Sun Herald reports the indictment says the vehicle was a 2001 Nissan Silvia, which does not meet federal safety and pollution standards and Kendall Noble knew it. 

 

The 31-year-old Noble pleaded not guilty Monday in U.S. District Court. 

 

He is set for trial on a court calendar that starts July 7. 

 

The charges are each punishable by up to 20 years in prison. 

 

Prosecutors say the car is a right-hand drive and it does not comply with standards of the Department of Transportation and the Environmental Protection Agency. 

 

He is free on a $25,000 unsecured bond.
