CLEVELAND -- A jury has found a worker at a Cleveland trucking company guilty of arson.
After a six-day trial, the jury convicted William H. Crawley, 55 on a 24-count indictment.
According to prosecutors, on August 5, 2012, Crawley started a fire at Sterling Valley Trucks on West 159th Street where he worked. Prosecutors say Crawley went into a garage bay and splashed gasoline into the cab of one of the trucks stored inside and set it on fire. Crawley then alerted his supervisor who was the only other person in the building at the time. Multiple departments had to be called to put out the fire.
Sentencing for Crawley is scheduled for February 13.
