Man sentenced in Rainelle arson


LEWISBURG, W. Va (WVVA)-- 23-year-old Nicholas White appeared in court for sentencing Friday.

He was charged alongside David White and three others in the alleged arson of the Rainelle State Police barracks.

Nicholas White took a plea agreement from the state and pled guilty to four counts of arson in the case.

The judge said he was impressed with White's conduct, especially in testifying against David White in his trial earlier this week.

White's counsel emphasized David White's control over Nicholas at the time the alleged crime was committed, and stressed his lack of criminal history prior to the December 2011 arson.

The judge ordered Nicholas White to 6-24 months in a youthful offender program at the Anthony Correctional Center in White Sulphur Springs. If White does not complete the program, he faces 12 consecutive years in prison.
