One Perry County woman accused of sexually abusing children pleaded not guilty this week.
40 year old Brenda Noble, also known as Brenda Bales, of Big Creek was indicted earlier this month on sodomy and sexual abuse charges.
Prosecutors say Noble abused two children between 2001 and 2008, confining them in a small attic and preventing them from getting medical attention and going to school.
Noble is behind bars in the Kentucky River Regional Jail on a $75,000 bond.
She has a pretrial hearing scheduled for January 8th, 2014.
