A man faces 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to setting fire at a Las Vegas autism learning facility.
According to the office of U.S. Attorney Daniel G. Bogden, 24-year-old Samuel Powers agreed to plead guilty to a count of arson and a count of possession of unregistered firearms.
The charges are in connection to an April 15 incident in which several commercial businesses at 7055 Windy St. caught fire. Citing a plea agreement, Bogden's office said Powers forced his way into the Sport Social facility with three Molotov cocktails and a gasoline container.
Powers drenched the business in gasoline lit multiple fires, eventually causing at least $50,000 in damage, Bogden's office said.
Sentencing for Powers was scheduled for Nov. 1. Powers is expected to get 10 years in prison as part of a binding plea agreement between prosecutors and the defendant.
