Young Man Gets Break In Arson Case

By Jim McCoy Fri 1st November NewsarsonDevon Anthony McDonald
Jackson County prosecutors gave a 20-year-old man a break that allows him to go on probation instead of prison for setting fire to a Medford home. The owner of the home did not want Devon Anthony McDonald to go to prison and prosecutor Nick Geil says the Medford man can still get his life on track. The Mail Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1cudqJz) McDonald pleaded no contest Thursday to arson. Instead of a seven-year prison sentence for a Measure 11 crime, McDonald was placed on three years' probation and required to pay restitution. McDonald doused the side of the home with gasoline and set it on fire in May because he thought someone had stolen his iPod.
