Mosque Arsonist

A Houston man was sentenced Friday to four years in prison after pleading guilty to starting a fire at a mosque on Christmas Day.

Gary Nathaniel Moore, 38 of Houston, was arrested last year in connection with a fire at 2 p.m. on Dec. 25.


Moore told investigators at the scene that he had attended the mosque for five years, coming five times per day to pray seven days per week, according to court records.
