PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pierre man accused of raping a teenage girl in a home where he had done plumbing work has pleaded not guilty.

Thirty-year-old David Timmons faces three rape-related counts that could put him in prison for decades if he’s convicted.

Judge John Brown on Wednesday also set bond for Timmons at $20,000 cash or surety. A magistrate judge earlier had refused to set bond, in part because Timmons’ parents had refused to take him in while his case proceeds.

Defense attorney Brad Schreiber told Brown that the parents have since changed their minds.
