Washington, (ANI): The two suspects accused of trying to extort millions of dollars from John Travolta have pleaded not guilty in court. Ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne and ex Bahamas senator Pleasant Bridgewater were alleged to have teamed up in a 25-million-dollar plot to extort money from Travolta and his wife over information related to their 16-year-old son Jett's death.
