RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A 23-year-old Rapid City man has pleaded not guilty to starting a fire at the City/County Alcohol and Drug Programs Center.

Edward Red Feather initially was charged with arson, but prosecutors later reduced the charge to reckless burning or explosion. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.

The Rapid City Journal (https://bit.ly/19D1Dwq ) reports Red Feather’s attorney requested a bond reduction, and said his client was intoxicated at the time of the February fire. Circuit Judge Robert Gusinsky denied the reduction, as well as a request seeking permission for Red Feather to attend a funeral and wake on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The attorney has said he will seek a mental evaluation for Red Feather.
