$1 Million W.Va. Arson Scheme Sees Three More Sentenced

Prison Bars

Three more defendants in a $1 million arson insurance scheme in Logan have been sentenced to prison.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said the three were sentenced to a total of 25 years in prison for their roles in the February 2012 torching of a law office building in downtown Logan. The scheme was the brainchild of James Gregory Glick, a restaurateur who collected $1 million in an insurance payout on the building.
Glick was sentenced last week to seven years. A co-conspirator, insurance agent William Jamey Thompson of Chapmanville, was sentenced to five years.
Sentenced this week for their roles in the scheme were Michael D. Williams of Logan, who set the fire; and Shawn C. Simon of Charles and Guy R. Miller of Logan.
