STURGEON BAY - A man who set fire to a registered sex offender's residence was sentenced Monday to three years in prison.

T.J. Hunt, along with Justin Baker, set fire to the home where Jason Johnson was staying. Johnson is a registered sex offender, had moved in shortly before the Nov. 2 fire. Police said they set the fire because they didn't want a sex offender living there.

Hunt was also placed on extended supervision for seven years.

Baker was sentenced to nine months in jail, a $500 fine, and community service.
