Sentencing delayed for 2 ex-firefighters convicted of arson


CROFTON, Ky. (AP) – The sentencing of two former Kentucky firefighters has been delayed.

The Kentucky New Era reports a judge on Wednesday delayed the sentencing of former Crofton Volunteer Fire Chief Jeremy P. Marlar and firefighter Glen R. McGee to next week. The 29-year-old Marlar and 24-year-old McGee were convicted this year of arson.

Marlar, McGee, 19-year-old ex-firefighters Dylan M. Hodge and Dakota S. Oglesby are accused of burning an empty building in 2017. Hodges pleaded guilty as part of a deal that diverted his case in exchange for testifying at Marlar and McGee’s trial. Oglesby’s trial is set for January.

Commonwealth’s Assistant Attorney Maggie Gigandet requested the delay as the amount of restitution hasn’t been agreed upon. The judge pushed the sentencing in hopes an agreement could be reached.
