JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - A Juneau man has pleaded guilty to felony criminal mischief for 2012 fires that caused $26,000 in damage at a city park.

The Juneau Empire (https://bit.ly/1E08U4D) reports 26-year-old Ryan Martin changed his plea Tuesday.

A second man, 26-year-old Dillon West, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal mischief and was sentenced to 80 hours of community service.

A third defendant, 20-year-old Ashley Rae Johnston, was convicted of felony criminal mischief last year.

Prosecutors say the three were recorded on park video surveillance cameras before the June 19, 2012, park fires.

The fires damaged a tractor and material owned by a company replacing artificial turf at a city football field.

Martin, with no prior felony convictions, faces a presumptive prison sentence of zero to two years. The maximum is five years.
