SPENCER, Iowa -- The owner of a Spencer gentlemen's steakhouse has pleaded not guilty to failing to pay more than $89,000 in Iowa sales taxes generated by his businesses.

Christopher Burg, 36, of Spencer, entered written pleas Tuesday in Clay County District Court to seven counts of first-degree fraudulent practices, 11 counts of sales tax evasion, three counts of failure to obtain a sales tax permit after revocation, two counts of second-degree fraudulent practices and single counts each of commission of a specified unlawful activity and failure to obtain a sales tax permit.
