CLINTON, Iowa (AP) - A Clinton man who set fire to the metal shelving manufacturer where he worked has been sentenced to probation.

The Clinton Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1SmIx1l ) that 41-year-old David Boyd was convicted of second-degree arson and sentenced this week to three years’ supervised probation.

Boyd was given a deferred judgment, meaning his record will be cleared if he successfully completes the terms of his probation. Boyd also will have to pay restitution, which will be determined at a Feb. 3 hearing.

Court records show firefighters were called to Collis Inc. before dawn on Sept. 16 for a fire that started in a janitor’s closet. Investigators say Boyd, who had no prior criminal record, admitted to setting the fire while about 20 other employees were in the building. No one was injured.
