Sentencing postponed in East Greenbush arson case
EAST GREENBUSH -- One of four teens charged with setting fire to a centuries-old Dutch farmhouse in East Greenbush last September will be sentenced on October after admitting to his hand in the blaze.
17-year-old Thomas Snyder pleaded guilty to arson telling investigators that he and three other 15-year-old boys started the fire that destroyed the vacant Kospa Family Farmhouse on Start Avenue.
Snyder was supposed to be sentenced today but it was once again postponed.
The three other teens are having their cases handled under family court because of their age.
Under the terms of Snyder's plea bargain, he will serve five years probation and pay $750 in restitution. Snyder was also given youthful offender status, which means his record will be sealed.
