KEENE — Former Stoddard firefighter has accepted a plea deal after being accused of setting fires that consumed more than 190 acres and put several homes at risk during dry weather in April.
David Plante faced four felony counts of arson and three felony counts of reckless conduct in connection with brush fires in Stoddard. Originally Plante plead not guilty, but on Monday he accepted a plea deal.
The plea deal dropped the seven charges down to two arson charges. For each charge Plante is scheduled to spend seven years in jail. The second charge could be dropped after 12 years after he pays restitution, goes to counseling, and completes a psych evaluation.
