ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A 25-year-old Colorado man accused of setting fire to a garage in retaliation to his roommates drawing phallic symbols on his face while he was asleep has been sentenced to two years of probation.
The Aspen Times reported Monday that Stephen Elmore pleaded guilty to fourth-degree arson in exchange for a plea deal that calls for the felony conviction to be wiped from his criminal record if he stays out of trouble.
Court documents say that in January, Elmore's Snowmass Village roommates drew on his face with a felt-tipped pen while he was asleep. When he discovered the drawings, he confronted a roommate before going downstairs and eventually starting a fire in the garage.
