"BEWLEY GIVEN PROBATION IN ARSON — A Wise County jury yesterday morning sentenced Taz Thomas Bewley, 38, to 10 years of probation a day after he pleaded guilty to arson." - From the Update
I watched a little bit of the trial and, thank God, the jury gave the guy probation. He is severely physically scarred from setting himself on fire, had no criminal history, and clearly did not intend to harm anyone. (He pretty much set himself and his car on fire - a fire which moved over to a trailer home after about 15 minutes). It was more of a suicide attempt than anything else.
