St. Paul Man Sentenced to 3 Years for Fire at Floyd Protest
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A St. Paul man who pleaded guilty to helping set fire to a Minneapolis police station during protests over the death of George Floyd has been sentenced to three years in federal prison.
Davon De-Andre Turner was also ordered to serve two years of supervised release and pay back $12 million for damages that resulted from the May 2020 precinct fire.
The 25-year-old Turner pleaded guilty in January to one count of conspiracy to commit arson.
A federal complaint accuses Turner and Bryce Williams of lighting a Molotov cocktail that was taken into the Third Precinct headquarters by Turner and used to start a fire. Two other people have been sentenced in the case.
Williams is scheduled to be sentenced on June 7,
