Fargo man gets 90 days in arson case
FARGO - A 60-year-old Fargo man received a 90-day jail sentence Monday after pleading guilty to setting his mobile home on fire to "put it out of its misery."
Stephen Carl Schmit Jr. pleaded guilty to an amended felony charge of endangering by fire or explosion in Cass County District Court.
He was originally charged with arson, which carried up to 10 years in prison, but did not have insurance on the home and the charge was reduced.
