Criminal proceedings are moving forward in the case against Mississippi agent Philip Halbert Neilson, who is accused of failing to disclose his financial interest in a leased FBI building in Oxford, Miss.

Neilson pleaded not guilty Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Allan Alexander in Oxford, the Associated Press reported.

A March 8 trial has been set. Neilson obtained a financial interest in the FBI Oxford building at the time he headed up the office, authorities said.
