A Konawa man accused of planting an improvised explosive device on a natural gas pipeline near Okemah has his initial day in federal court.

40-year-old Daniel Herriman pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to the complaint of planting the pipe bomb on August seventh and was appointed a U-S public defender.

Eastern District of Oklahoma U-S Attorney Mark Green says Herriman is returning to court on Thursday to be given a detention hearing

“In other words will the judge agree to allow him out of jail on bond or will the judge rule that he should remain incarcerated until further proceedings?”

Prosecutors want him held without bond.

Green couldn’t say what might have motivated Herriman’s alleged actions.

The charge of attempting to damage or destroy property by means of an explosive device carries a 5 to 20 year prison sentence and up to $250,000 in fines.
