LOS ANGELES — Newport-Mesa Unified Supt. Jeffrey Hubbard pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court to an additional felony charge of misappropriation of public funds. Hubbard, 54, is now facing three felony counts related to his last job as schools chief in Beverly Hills.

The new charge stems from prosecutors' allegations that Hubbard gave a pay raise — without the school board's required approval — to another administrator, Nora Roque, while the two worked together in the Beverly Hills Unified School District in May of 2005, according to a copy of the indictment.
