LOS ANGELES (AP) — The former construction director of Pasadena's Huntington Memorial Hospital has pleaded not guilty to federal mail fraud charges alleging that companies controlled by him or his family netted more that $3 million in a kickback scheme.

U.S. attorney's office spokesman Thom Mrozek says 54-year-old David Hamedany pleaded not guilty Friday to 12 counts of mail fraud. Each count carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison.

Hamedany held his position from 2006 to June 2010. He is accused of authorizing $3.8 million in contracts to companies that later made more than $3 million in kickback payments. He was arrested Friday at his Glendale home.

Hamedany remains jailed pending a bond hearing scheduled for Tuesday. His attorney, Gerson Horn, did not return a phone call.
