Two men accused of helping a convicted rapist escape from the Gallatin County Law and Justice Center in February deny being involved.
Cedric Allen Standish-Codding and Tristan Kane Anacker both pleaded not guilty to obstructing justice for helping Kevin Briggs escape from police custody on February 1. Anacker is also charged with tampering with evidence.
Prosecutors accuse Standish-Codding of breaking Briggs out of his restraints using a dremel tool and giving him $23, a sweatshirt and glasses.
Charging documents state Briggs went to Anacker and Tristan Kranker's apartment another of Briggs' accomplices after he escaped custody.
Anacker told detectives he knew about the MSU alert issued the morning Briggs escaped, but he told him they were all lies.
Briggs is charged with five felonies and is being held at the Gallatin County Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
