Moorhead man gets four months in jail for bar arson


MOORHEAD – A Moorhead man plans to fight a restitution request from the owner of the former Coach’s bar after pleading guilty to setting the building on fire last summer.

Jeffrey Joseph Little, 29, was sentenced Wednesday in Clay County District Court to four months in jail on a single count of felony second-degree arson, avoiding a possible prison term.

A count of first-degree arson was dropped as part of his plea deal.
