BREWER, Maine (WABI) - A man from Brewer has been sentenced to a year in jail for trying to burn down the home of his former girlfriend.
42-year-old Rahsaan White was convicted last month of criminal mischief. He also pleaded guilty to criminal threatening.
Police say last November he poured gasoline through a home on North Main Street.
Prosecutors say he'd just finished a 10-month sentence for assaulting his ex-girlfriend and when he got out, he started threatening her.
White took off out state to avoid arrest.
Federal authorities picked him up a few days later in Memphis, Tennessee.
