Pair plead guilty in Logan arson case
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Federal prosecutors say a former Logan city councilman and a co-defendant have pleaded guilty in an arson scheme.
Ex-councilman James Gregory Glick and businessman Guy R. Miller each pleaded guilty Wednesday to arson and conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud.
Prosecutors say Glick arranged to have a vacant Logan office building burned to collect $1 million in insurance proceeds.
Glick also pleaded guilty to conducting unlawful monetary transactions and structuring currency transactions, while Miller also pleaded guilty to charges related to oxycodone distribution in Logan County.
Both Glick and Miller face at least seven years in prison when they're sentenced Feb. 19 in federal court in Charleston.
Two others charged in the case, insurance company operator William Janey Thompson and Shawn Simon, are scheduled for plea hearings today.
