Young Scheduled For Warren County Sentencing Tuesday

WARREN – Jonathan Young, the 20-year-old Jamestown man accused of setting numerous house fires throughout the Jamestown and Falconer area, is scheduled for sentencing Tuesday afternoon in Warren County Court.
Court documents obtained by WNYNewsNow state that an argument was originally scheduled for Tuesday over a motion by Young’s lawyer, Charbel Latouf, to dismiss the charges Young faces. Young allegedly burglarized a Pine Grove Township home before stealing a vehicle.
Young faces charges of felony 1 burglary, felony 3 theft by unlawfully taking moving prop and misdemeanor loitering and prowling at nighttime.
The argument was originally slated for July 6, but was moved to the 24th at the request of Young’s lawyer. The hearing is also labeled as plea court, but records don’t indicate if a plea deal was reached.
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.
The following nine charges were dropped as part of the plea:
Felony 1 Arson (Danger of Death or Bodily Injury), Felony 1 Burglary (Overnight Accommodations, Person Present), Felony 1 Criminal Attempted Burglary (Overnight Accommodations, Person Present), Felony 2 Arson (Intent to Destroy Unoccupied Building), Felony 3 Criminal Mischief (Damaging Property With Intent, Recklessness or Negligence), Felony 3 Criminal Trespassing, Misdemeanor 1 Possession of Instrument of Crime, Dangerous Burning and Misdemeanor 3 Theft by Unlawfully Taking a moving prop.
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.
