Posted by Web Staff -



Akron, OH (WOIO) -  A 16-year-old accused Summit County arsonist will have plenty of time to cool off.

According to published reports, the teen admitted to several charges including aggravated arson.

He was sentenced to a year in a youth corrections facility but he could be held up until his 21st birthday.

The teen, who initially pled not guilty, was accused of setting several fires last month in his North Hill neighborhood.
