2006 Church Arsonists Want Prison Sentences Reduced


By George McDonald

Two men convicted in the 2006 Alabama church fires -- are now trying to get their state prison sentences reduced.

Bibb County District Attorney Michael Jackson says a hearing for church arsonists Matthew Cloyd and Nathan Mosely has been set for August 5th. He says Cloyd and Mosely are asking that their time in state prison be reduced.

"And of course, I'm strongly opposed to these two guys getting a reduced sentence," said Jackson. "What they did was a terrible, horrible thing, to burn up nine churches, it's just wrong to have their sentenced reduced."

Five of the nine churches the men set fire to -- were in Bibb County.
