Ex-firefighter gets probation for purposely burning building

By  | 

CROFTON, Ky. (AP) -- A former Kentucky firefighter has been sentenced to probation for intentionally burning down an empty Crofton building.

The Kentucky New Era reports 19-year-old Dakota Oglesby was sentenced Wednesday to five years of probation, pending restitution payment. The former Crofton Volunteer firefighter pleaded guilty in December to arson and burglary, and is one of four former firefighters convicted in the crime.

Twenty-nine-year-old former Chief Jeremy P. Marlar and 24-year-old former firefighter Glen R. McGee were convicted in a trial last year and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Nineteen-year-old ex-firefighter Dylan M. Hodge and Oglesby pleaded guilty last year. Hodge took a plea deal and was sentenced to a diversion program pending restitution payment.

All four are also involved in a civil case by the family who owned the building.
