BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Two former East Baton Rouge Parish Clerk of Court Office employees - one the son of a state judge - pleaded not guilty along with four others Thursday to charges stemming from the alleged theft of 48 pounds of cocaine and five guns from the clerk's evidence vault last year.

First Assistant District Attorney Prem Burns told The Advocate (http://bit.ly/H3Eq8Z ) after Thursday's arraignments that attorneys for several of the indicted defendants have approached her about possible plea bargains.

Frank Holthaus, who represents William Bates Colvin, son of state District Court Judge Kay Bates, said Colvin intends to take responsibility for his actions.

The next court date for Colvin and his co-defendants is Jan. 27.
