TRENTON - The mayor of Trenton appeared in federal court today for an arraignment on bribery, extortion and fraud charges. He pleaded not guilty.

Mack's brother and another man are also charged. All their lawyers have said they are not guilty.

Mack has stayed on as mayor despite calls from the Trenton City Council and Gov. Chris Christie for him to resign.
