Former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, pleaded not guilty to federal corruption charges on Friday morning.

The couple was indicted on 14 counts Tuesday. The indictment alleges they accepted more than $165,000 in expensive clothing, trips, loans and other items from Jonnie Williams Sr., former CEO of Star Scientific, in exchange for the governor's assistance in helping the maker of dietary supplements.

The jury trial has been set for July 28. The McDonnells were released on their own recognizance, and the judge ordered them not to leave the country.

The couple arrived at the courthouse Friday morning accompanied by two dozen family members and supporters.
