MAYVILLE – Jonathan Young, the 20-year-old Jamestown man accused of setting 12 separate fires within the Jamestown and Falconer area, is now being held in the Chautauqua County Jail.
According to the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office, Young was booked into County Jail without bail at 5:04 P.M.
Young was indicted by a Chautauqua County grand jury in Fall 2017 on 14 counts of arson and 11 counts of criminal mischief. He is also on the county’s warrants list for another charge of criminal mischief.
The Jamestown man was sentenced to serve 39-78 days in Warren County Jail after pleading guilty July 24th in Warren County Court to charges of theft by unlawfully taking a movable prop, a Felony 3, and Misdemeanor 3 loitering and prowling at night. In exchange, a burglary charge was dropped.
Young previously pleaded guilty in April to a charge of arson in Butler County. Young set a Slippery Rock residence on fire in March 2017. He was sentenced to 15-30 months in Butler County Jail, most of which was served while awaiting trial, and was also ordered to pay more than $60,000 in court costs, restitution and other fees.
WNYNewsNow will inquire about the next court date in the morning.
