A prosecutor says Randy and Evi Quaid have pleaded not guilty to felony charges of defrauding an innkeeper.
The couple appeared Tuesday in a Santa Barbara courtroom.
Senior Deputy District Attorney Lee Carter says they were released on $20,000 bail apiece. The sum had initially been forfeited when the Quaids failed to appear for a hearing last week.
They were taken into custody in Texas over the weekend after a previous arrest there on Sept. 24. They are accused of using an invalid credit card to defraud San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito of more than $10,000.
Their attorney, Robert Sanger, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
