Man Sentenced in CVS Arson During Baltimore Unrest

A man who set fire to a CVS pharmacy during unrest in Baltimore following the death of a black man in police custody was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison, federal prosecutors said, NBC News reported.

Raymon Carter, 24, must also pay $500,000 in restitution. Carter pleaded guilty to a federal charge of rioting for the April 27 arson, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Baltimore said.

The federal government said Carter admitted to intentionally setting the fire during looting at the CVS, which occurred during protests in Baltimore following the funeral for Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old man who suffered a spinal cord injury and died a week after being transported in a police van.
