The son of a former University of Nebraska-Lincoln athletic director has pleaded not guilty to producing child pornography.

Court records say 18-year-old Jack Eichorst entered the written plea Monday in Lincoln. No trial date has been scheduled.

Eichorst had been arrested last year on suspicion of the sexual assault of two minors, but prosecutors opted not to bring that charge. Eichorst's attorney, Sean Brennan, says Eichorst is autistic and that his level of sophistication and maturity is well below that of an 18-year-old.

Eichorst is the son of former University of Nebraska Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst, who was fired Sept. 21 after a five-year stint on the job.
