Former FF Sentenced to 3-10 Years for Arson

DOVER, N.H.—A former New Hampshire firefighter is going to prison for at least three years after pleading guilty to setting a series of fires.

Forty-four-year-old Stark Liedtke of Alton had pleaded guilty to three charges that he set fires on Berry Road in New Durham in 2006 and 2007. He also pleaded guilty to eight other arson-related charges.

In court Tuesday, Liedtke said he felt remorse. He was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.

Court documents say Liedtke admited he began setting fires when he was a teenager and couldn’t remember how many he’d set or where.

The New Hampshire Union Leader says Liedtke had been a firefighter for 22 years. As part of a plea deal he will be forbidden from serving as a firefighter again.
