Barton Wants Out Of Halfway House

The former U.S. Forest Service employee accused of deliberately starting the largest wildfire in state history wants the court to drop the requirement that she stay in a halfway house until her trial.

Lawyers for Terry Barton filed a motion on Monday in U.S. District court asking that terms of her release on $600,000 bond be changed to allow her to leave a Denver-area halfway house.

Federal public defenders said Barton is a longtime Colorado resident with a stable work history and no criminal record. The court will likely respond to the motion on Tuesday.
