A shipyard worker was sentenced to 17 years in prison by a Maine court on Friday after he admitted setting fire to a docked nuclear sub and causing $450 million in damage last year.
Casey James Fury, 25, was ordered to pay $400 million in restitution, the Associated Press reported.
Fury pleaded guilty to two arson counts in a plea agreement. He faced up to 19 years for setting the May 23 fire that damaged the USS Miami, a Los Angeles-class nuclear submarine, at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.
This jerk cost us almost half a billion and sidelined a nuclear sub for an untold number of months?
He should have been hanged.
I want to know why he does not have to pay back $50 million of the $450 million?
If we don’t hang him, I say we parachute him into the middle of a North Korean socialist slave/death camp dressed in complete USA clothing, unarmed.
He needs to stay working at the shipyard Kev.
He’ll get this fine paid off in about about 2 million years
Lol. Maybe we can give him a welding torch and permission to fix other military craft…
Sub-contract him to the Russians and Chinese.
