Singer Cee Lo Green pleaded not guilty Monday to furnishing the party drug Molly to a woman last year while dining at a downtown Los Angeles restaurant.

Green entered his plea in a downtown L.A. courtroom Monday afternoon and through his attorney, Blair Berk, waived his right to a speedy trial.

"The Voice" judge agreed to surrender to the Los Angeles Police Department for booking within seven days. A bond agent immediately appeared to post a $30,000 bail to release Green.

Green, whose real name is Thomas DeCarlo Callaway, is accused of providing Ecstasy, also known as Molly, to the 33-year-old woman in July 2012.

A Los Angeles Police Department investigation into the singer began almost a year ago after the woman said he put the drug in her drink as they dined.

The woman said she woke up to find herself naked in the 39-year-old singer's bed. But after two rounds of investigations, prosecutors declined to file sex-related charges against Green, citing insufficient evidence.

Green has previously denied any wrongdoing.
