Man charged with arson held on probation violation without bond

The past has a way of catching up with us. After an investigation of a year and a half, one Maryland man is now facing charges from an incident that occurred in 2012. According to the chief/public affairs officer, the man is being held on a probation violation without bond. He allegedly was the person who was responsible for starting a fire on Nov. 14 of that year at the Loudoun County Community Corrections Office. An estimated $200,000 in damaged was caused by that fire. The community corrections office had to be relocated. While it is believed that a fire at the office's new location was related to the November fire, the Dec. 19 fire is still under investigation.

At the time of the Nov. 2012 fire, the man who has been charged with arson of a building, two counts of a fire bomb used to commit arson, and conspiracy to commit a felony, had sentencing pending after a guilty plea for possession of methadone. He was ultimately sentenced to two years of probation and 18 months of suspended jail time for the possession of methadone charge.

The man was served four felony warrants by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office. Now that he knows what charges he faces in connection with the incident, he can determine how he should proceed with his criminal defense. Understanding all the evidence against him is one way that he can formulate his defense to move forward in a way in which he feels comfortable.
