February 11, 2006 -- A well-known Long Island minister pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges of repeatedly molesting his three daughters in their Queens family home for more than four years.

The 53-year-old pastor showed no emotion as the charges of incest, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child were read aloud in Queens Criminal Court.

His lawyer, Sean McNicholas, urged the judge to release the minister whose name is being withheld to protect his victims without bail, citing his long-standing ties to his neighborhood and clean record.
