GREEN BAY - The man accused of setting a Brazeau church on fire reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors.
Drew Christensen will be sentenced July 29 in federal court in Green Bay.
Christensen entered guilty pleas to three arson counts Friday. They involved the following incidents:
- Oct. 26, 2009, at the Everbreeze Resort in Mountain
- March 19, 2012, at the Klondike Church in Brazeau
- July 8, 2012, at the Jaded Bar in Suring
Each count carries federal prison time of 5 to 20 years. As part of the plea deal, which included dropping a fourth count, the parties agreed to recommend a 10-year sentence (two consecutive five-year sentences plus a five-year concurrent term). However, Judge William Griesbach is not bound by those terms.
No one was injured in the incidents.
