Accused Aussie peodophile says no to prelim hearing

Michael Quinn was nabbed at a Los Angeles hotel on May 21. Police say he had shown up expecting to pay $US260 ($A348) to molest a six-year-old boy.

A preliminary hearing for the Melbourne rugby union player, 33, was scheduled in the US District Court for June 6.
