RANCHO CUCAMONGA – Former Upland City Manager Robb Quincey pleaded not guilty Thursday to felony corruption charges in West Valley Superior Court.

The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office on Oct. 19 charged Quincey with felonies including unlawful misappropriation of public money, gaining personal benefit from an official contract, and giving false testimony under oath.

Quincey’s attorney Michael Zweiback said they will fight the charges.

“We look forward to our opportunity in court,” Zweiback said.

Deputy District Attorney Reza Sadeghi said he could not comment on the case.

Quincey, who was terminated by the City Council in May 2011 for failing to follow council direction and breaching his employment contract, is accused of committing a public officer crime as well as a conflict of interest in January 2010.
