Nelsonville bomber will not serve prison time
(2008-07-31)
(WOUB) - An Athens County man will not spend any time in prison in connection with a pipe bomb explosion at a Nelsonville camera shop last week.

As part of an agreement with prosecutors, 19-year-old Logan Clay pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of Arson and one count of Unlawful Possession of Dangerous Ordnance, both felonies.

Clay was sentenced to five years probation and 80 hours of community service with a 30 month suspended prison sentence.

Had he gone to trial and been convicted he could have been sentenced to a maximum two and half years in prison.

Clay must also pay restitution to the owners of Wilson Studio in Nelsonville.

The camera shop was heavily damaged by one of three pipe bombs set off in the city last week.

Clay is one of three Nelsonville men charged in the incidents.

Eighteen year olds Bryson Cuthill and Roy Plant were indicted for one count of Aggravated Arson, three counts of Illegally Manufacturing Explosives, and one count of Arson.

Athens County Assistant Prosecutor Keller Blackburn says he offered the plea agreement to Clay because he is the least responsible of the group.

Plant and Cuthill are to appear for arraignment on August 6th.
