Uniontown man will serve prison term for arson

Monday, Aug. 25, 2014, 6:33 p.m.
 

A Uniontown man was sentenced on Monday to five to 10 years in prison for arson and criminal mischief.

Senior Judge Gerald Solomon imposed the sentence on Walter Sparks, 59, who pleaded guilty in July to the charges.

Sparks was observed entering and exiting a house on West Askren Street just prior to it catching on fire in July 2013, according to police.

Police said Sparks set the fire in a pile of debris with tires on top.

Solomon ordered Sparks to make $14,741 in restitution.
