Clinton man pleads not guilty to burning own home

Posted:

CLINTON (KWWL) -- A Clinton man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he started a fire that burned down his house in November 2008.

The Clinton Herald reports that 60-year-old Jeffrey Soboroff entered the written plea Thursday.

Court records show two gasoline canisters were found inside the building, and the state fire marshal's office said the fire was set on purpose.

Soboroff is now serving a 10-year prison sentence stemming from harassment and extortion charges in 2008.
