Nicholas Miller was sentenced Feb. 28 to 75 years in prison for starting the fire that almost destroyed the Mason County Courthouse in February 2021.
Miller was also sentenced to 75 years in prison for starting a fire at a home on Ranck Street in Mason prior to the fire at the Courthouse.
Sentences were also handed down Feb. 28 for several other crimes for which Miller was charged, and to which he had pled guilty prior to the start of his trial. However, he did not plead guilty to the more serious charge of causing the fire that consumed the Courthouse and the Ranck Street home.
For those offences, Miller was sentenced to two years for burglary of a building; two years and a $20,000 fine for unlawful use of a vehicle; and 10 years for unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
The sentences are to all run concurrently.
