BISMARCK, N.D. — The former Dickinson principal accused of setting fire to his school posted a reduced bail Friday.

Thomas Sander, 30, has been in jail since March 5 after police charged him with arson and endangerment by fire. Police say Sander is responsible for the fire in Trinity High School.

The Stark County Clerk of Court's Office says a judge reduced Sander's bail from $500,000 to $50,000 Friday morning. Sander's new conditions say he must be placed under the custody of Thomas Sander Sr. and he can only travel within Stark, Burleigh and Morton counties. He's still prohibited from any contact with school officials.

Sander is due back in court April 21.
