Richard Secord pleaded innocent Monday to charges of concealing from Congress more than $1 million in profits he allegedly pocketed by selling arms to Iran and the Nicaraguan Contras. Prosecutors and defense attorneys said at Mr. Secord's arraignment before US District Court Chief Judge Aubrey Robinson that they will discuss whether to combine the latest set of charges with an earlier indictment.
