A judge has set a $500,000 bond for the principal of Trinity High School in Dickinson who has been charged with setting fire to the school.
Thirty-year-old Thomas Sander appeared in court Wednesday. He has been charged with arson and endangerment by fire or explosion, both felonies that carry a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison. Court documents don't list an attorney for him and a home telephone listing for him couldn't be found.
Police and fire officials are still investigating. The Bishop of Bismarck and school board officials plan to meet Friday to discuss a full assessment of the property.
The fire early Monday heavily damaged the school. Students have been given the week off while officials decide how to proceed for the rest of the school year.
