BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A New York man who pleaded guilty to threatening a Maine man and trying to burn down his house has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Oscar Nunez pleaded guilty in September 2014 to charges of arson and criminal threatening. Authorities say the 28-year-old Bronx man fired a shot at the Orrington home in July 2012, poured gasoline on it and set it on fire.

Authorities say Nunez was trying to scare off another drug dealer.

Nunez was also sentenced Thursday in Bangor to almost seven years for a federal gun possession charge. The terms will be served at the same time.

Nunez says he regrets everything he’s done.
