NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Actor Stephen Baldwin has been charged with failing to file New York state income taxes for three years.

Baldwin pleaded not guilty and was released without bail.

The district attorney says Baldwin could face up to four years in prison if convicted. The actor is due back in court on Feb. 5.
