PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland man has been sentenced to federal prison for arson at the Multnomah County Justice Center during a protest in May 2020.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Edward Schinzing was sentenced to 15 months in federal prison and three years of supervised release. He also agreed to pay restitution to Multnomah County.
