The man who set fire July 16 to the home of his mother and stepfather at 677 Mosquito Valley Road, Armstrong Township, was sentenced this week by Judge Marc F. Lovecchio to five years of intermediate punishment for arson.
James Charles Lee, 29, also was ordered to make $80,000 restitution to an insurance company for the damage.
The ex-Marine was arrested Aug. 1 after fleeing into nearby woods after igniting the fire with a cigarette lighter, starter logs and wood, according to police. He was captured the following day.
Lee admitted the arson to investigators and told them he wanted to burn down the structure.
Jolene D. Stahl, 30, of 791 Sagers Station Road, Montgomery, was sentenced to four to 24 months-minus one day-for possession of liquid ammonia gas and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was also sentenced to two years of probation.
Stahl was charged in connection with a methamphetamine lab drug bust in Hughesville in late April. Borough police, state police and the Lycoming County Drug Task Force worked to nab Stahl along with others in the raid.
Robert W. Conway, 28, of 190 Slacks Run Road, Trout Run, also was sentenced Aug. 31 by Lovecchio to two to four years in state prison for failure to register. Conway pleaded guilty in 2007 to indecent assault against a person under the age of 13 and served about 17 1/2 months, according to court records.
Christopher Mullen, 27, Lycoming County Prison, was sentenced to 41 to 82 months in state prison on drug and related charges by Judge Joy R. McCoy.
Mullen was sentenced on charges of possession with intent to deliver, possession of controlled substance, contraband by inmate, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and fabrication of physical evidence.
He was stopped by state police in early January, 2011 in the 800 block of Cherry Street on traffic violations. Troopers found bags of marijuana in plain view. Mullen, who was already on probation at the time, became unruly when taken into custody and had to be Tasered several times by troopers in order to handcuff him, according to police.
Mullen was also found to be attempting to toss Percocet and Oxycodone pills from his clothing upon arrival at the Lycoming County Prison, police said.
