The former president of Brazil's soccer federation is due in a U.S. courtroom Tuesday afternoon, after being extradited from Switzerland. Jose Maria Marin was arrested along with top FIFA officials this past spring; he's accused of taking millions of dollars in bribes.

At an arraignment for Marin in a federal courthouse in New York Tuesday afternoon, he pleaded not guilty, The Associated Press reports.

He was once a vice president of soccer's world governing body, but now Jack Warner, who's under an indictment for corruption charges, has been banned from the sport for life. FIFA announced the move Tuesday, citing repeated misconduct by Warner.
