Rifle arson case continued until July

Bobby MagillPost Independent Staff

Alleged Rifle arsonist Robin Jay Clifton appeared at his arraignment on Friday wearing a red jump suit and a smile. Clifton faces 12 felony counts and other charges for burning the Rifle Fireside Lanes and an Amoco gas station, and damaging two other structures on Sept. 5, 2005. He is also facing charges for indecent exposure and aggravated motor vehicle theft. Attorney Arnold Mordkin, who is representing Clifton, told Chief District Judge Thomas Craven Friday that discovery in the case is “quite extensive,” and will take time. Because Mordkin will be out of the area for most of June and the time needed for discovery, Clifton will not return to court until July 7. The court on April 10 set Clifton’s bond at $110,000 for all charges. Contact Bobby Magill: 945-8515, ext. 520bmagill@postindependent.com
