3 More Sentenced in $1M West Virginia Arson, Insurance Fraud

June 2, 2014

Three more defendants in a $1 million arson insurance scheme in Logan, West Virginia, have been sentenced to prison.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said the three were sentenced to a total of 25 years in prison for their roles in the February 2012 torching of a law office building in downtown Logan. The scheme was the brainchild of James Gregory Glick, a restaurateur who collected $1 million in an insurance payout on the building.

Glick was sentenced last week to seven years. A co-conspirator, insurance agent William Jamey Thompson of Chapmanville, was sentenced to five years.

The others sentenced for their roles in the scheme are Michael D. Williams of Logan, who set the fire; and Shawn C. Simon of Charles and Guy R. Miller of Logan.
