- A judge has said Grace Sark is improbable to be able to settle for the damage.
- Approximately 20 people were displaced after a fire on Euston Street in Charlottetown on April 6, 2021.
- Grace May Sark finally pleaded blameworthy to lighting the fire.
A woman who put a fire in a Charlottetown flat building last year has been convicted to one year in a provincial prison.
Grace May Sark was sentenced to P.E.I. Provincial Court on Monday, following a joint sentencing
advice last week from Crown prosecutor John Diamond and defense attorney Trish Cheverie.
The early morning blaze in April of 2021 left three people wounded, forced 20 citizens of the 224 Euston Street building out of their houses, and caused $250,000 in damage.
Sark will be on probation for three years after her release from jail and has been requested to pay $125,000 restitution.
Judge Jeff Lantz had said there is no reasonable anticipation that Sark will ever be able to pay for the cost of damages.
