MILL CITY, Ore. -- A former Mill City employee was sentenced to three years in prison for burning down city hall two and a half years ago.

Prosecutors said Joy Cronin did it to cover up her theft of more than $20,000. A jury agreed, and found her guilty on three counts of arson earlier this month.

She was also sentenced to three years of post-prison supervision and ordered to pay nearly $400,000 in restitution.
