Text:Internet shock journo Jonathan Marshall has pleaded not guilty to charges of consuming pure methamphetamine after a hearing at the Waitakere District Court yesterday. The charges were laid after police received a videotape from the Sunday Star-Times, made by 47-year-old Takapuna Grammar teacher David Arthur, which appeared to feature students consuming P at his house, as well as a separate scene involving a naked teen boy. Marshall has been remanded on bail until a status hearing in November, and further details of what exactly appears on the videotape are vague. He denies being seen consuming P, appearing naked or performing any sexual act, stealing the video, or receiving any remuneration from the Sunday Star-Times for their expose.
