West Union man convicted of arson


A West Union man with a history of arson has been convicted of starting three fires.

Here's a look at just one of the three fires 40-year-old Shawn Gant was accused of starting.

This was in Oelwein in 2010.

Tuesday he was convicted on three counts of arson.

Those charges stem from this incident as well as two other fires in Independence and Fayette during 2009.

Shawn Gant faces up to 80 years in prison and a minimum of 17 years.

A sentencing date has not been set.
