Two men who set ablaze a police car during the Baltimore riots have been handed down prison sentences a year later.
Keith Riggins, 24, and Keon Brown, 23, both received prison time Friday for their role in setting a police car on fire during the April 2015 Baltimore riots, according to the State’s Attorney Office. The riots began after the death of Freddie Gray, which has since become a rallying point for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Brown received a sentence of four years in prison after pleading guilty to first degree malicious burning. Riggins received a sentence of two years in prison for conspiracy to commit first degree malicious burning. A surveillance video was key to convicting the two men.
