A Lewis County man was sentenced to two-and-a-half years of shock incarceration after he pleaded guilty in connection with a fire that damaged three downtown Lowville buildings in 2016
Twenty-two year old Douglas Tuttle was sentenced in Lewis County Court on Friday. He was also sentenced to one year of post-release supervision.
Tuttle pleaded guilty in March to felony counts of third-degree manufacture of methamphetamine and fifth-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance.
He and two others were charged with making meth in 2016 after a fire at an apartment house on South State Street in Lowville.
The flames spread to two other buildings.
A hearing to determine how much restitution he should pay is scheduled for September.
