Man sentenced in Wisner Park Nativity scene fire


The man who set fire to the Nativity scene at Wisner Park last December will serve one-year in county jail.

Daniel Peterson-Green had previously pleaded guilty to the crime. 

Police say he was homeless when he intentionally set the fire last December 6th.

The nativity was destroyed but a local family donated a temporary replacement in time for the Christmas festivities.

City leaders hope to have a permanent replacement installed in time for this holiday season.
