Two Penn State rugby players who set fire to the team shed will serve three years on probation, perform 200 hours of community service and pay $31,000 in restitution.
Senior Judge David E. Grine sentenced Christpher Petri, 23, and Sean Herbert, 22, according to the Centre County District Attorney's Office.
The charges stem from a January 2014 incident in which the two players, disgruntled by what they felt was unfair treatment, set the shed ablaze “to send the coach a message of discontent,” according to the District Attorney’s Office.
They were found guilty in a jury trial of felony charges including arson, criminal mischief and criminal conspiracy.
