An August 26 trial date is tentatively set for 38-year old Terry Barton, the U.S. Forest Service technician accused of starting the Hayman fire. A federal grand jury indictment charges here with intentionally setting the blaze.
Barton entered a not guilty plea to federal charges on Thursday in federal court in Denver. Bail was set at $600,000. U.S. Mgistrate Mike Watanabe has ordered Barton not to leave the state or enter a forest if she is released on bail.
She faces up to 65 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted of all charges.
Barton has worked for the U.S. Forest Service for 18 years and was patrolling the Pike National Forest to watch for fires, when the fire started. She initially told investigators she came upon a fire started by someone else. But she later changed her story and said the fire started accidentally when she burned a letter from her estranged husband.
