MADISON, SD -
A man arrested in an incident in Madison in which authorities say two cars were stolen and later set ablaze has been sentenced to six years in prison.
That 21-year-old Jonathan Christiansen pleaded guilty to arson, vandalism and theft, as well as to having sexual contact with a child under age 16.
Christiansen also was ordered to pay about $13,300 in restitution in the August arson incident, in which an abandoned farmhouse also was burned down.
In October, 19-year-old Alan Olson was sentenced to prison and restitution for his role in the theft and arson case.
