Kansas man gets 5 years for setting fire in bedroom

October 29, 2010


— The U.S. attorney's office says a 28-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to five years in prison for arson.

Mario William Petrardi must also pay $12,600 in restitution under the sentence imposed Wednesday by U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten.

Petrardi pleaded guilty to setting a fire last year in the bedroom of an apartment in Pratt.

I think that 5 years is not nearly enough - a very similar fire here in Lawrence a few years back killed a few people, and traumatized many more for life!
