Man accused of setting fire in City-Council Building indicted in federal court
MADISON, Wis. — A grand jury returned an indictment Wednesday, agreeing there is enough evidence to suggest that a man accused of setting a fire in the City-County Building in June had committed a crime.
According to a news release, Marquon Clark, 26, was charged with attempting to damage and destroy by fire the building on June 24. Clark was charged with that offense in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Madison on Oct. 5.
The release said federal law requires that a criminal charge filed by complaint be presented to a grand jury for indictment.
If convicted in federal court, Clark faces a mandatory minimum penalty of five years and a maximum of 20 years in prison.
