  • LACEY RAE MOORE: Gets 16 years for apartment arsons.
Federal Judge Billy Roy Wilson today sentenced Lacey Rae Moore to 16 years in federal prison for setting fires at the Forest Place Apartments, one of which destroyed a building. She also was ordered to make $12.5 million in restitution, likely a symbolic judgment.

Wilson sentenced Moore, 44, who had pleaded guilty, to nine years on one count and seven on another, to be served consecutively.

Moore pleaded guilty Aug. 1 to setting seven fires and using an explosive device. She got the longer sentence for a May 16, 2013 fire that destroyed the North Building and forced evacuation of 350 to 400 people. The other count was for a June 28, 2013 fire in which a firefighter was injured and 100 people were forced out of apartments.
