98 Degrees Singer - Justin Jeffre said he spent several hours in jail and it was 'no fun.' The former 98 Degress band member has pleaded not guilty to trespassing after being arrested in the Occupy Cincinnati protest.

Police say the member of 98 Degrees was one of 11 people arrested early Sunday at the city's Fountain Square after the 3 a.m. closing time. They also were charged with unlawful use of the square.

Jeffre tells The Cincinnati Enquirer he spent several hours in jail and it was "no fun." But he says it was the right place to be to stand up for free speech.

Attorney Jennifer Kinsley entered a not guilty plea for him Monday.

The now 38-year-old Jeffre is a founding member of 98 Degrees with Nick and Drew Lachey (luh-SHAY') and Jeff Timmons. The group launched in the late 1990s. He has more recently been a Cincinnati political activist.
