A KOTA Territory man charged with the rape of a 10 year-old girl pleads not guilty. Prosecutors say Lloyd Thompson raped the young girl between September and October 10th of last year.
Friday morning, his attorney asked the court to reduce his $100,000 bond. The state opposed it saying that their have been two other unsubstantiated abuse claims on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Deputy State's Attorney Scott Roetzel says he's also worried that Thompson is a flight risk. Seventh Circuit Court Judge Thomas Trimble did drop his bond to $50,000.
