STURGEON BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Door County man accused of setting fire to his neighbor's home because he was a registered sex offender has been convicted.

On Tuesday, Justin Baker pled no contest to recklessly endangering safety, while a count of arson was dropped. Baker was sentenced to 9 months in jail, placed on probation for three years, fined $500 and ordered to perform 75 hours of community service.

In the same case, T.J. Robert Hunt pled no contest to a count of arson. Hunt will learn his fate on July 14.

Both men set fire to the home of Jason Johnson, who was convicted in Michigan in 2009 of 2nd degree Criminal Sexual Assault.
