A five-and-a-half-year prison sentence was handed-down today to a Mansfield man who was convicted of setting the stove on fire while his 13 and 9-year-old daughters slept inside his house on Danwood Drive last October 14th. The girls escaped unhurt. 43-year-old Samuel Davis appeared in Richland County Common Pleas Court to learn his fate after a jury found him guilty of Aggravated Arson, Child Endangering, and Criminal Damaging. But Judge James DeWeese does not believe setting the fire was unintentional, and does not find Davis remorseful. After he's released from prison, Davis will spent five years on post-release control. He also must pay $2,700 in restitution.
