Bridgeforth sentenced

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2013

It’s prison time for a man from Streator who set fires in both La Salle and Livingston County.

Joshua Bridgeforth pled guilty this week to arson and burglary and was given five years in prison. He was also given five years for arson in Livingston County but will serve the sentences at the same time.

Bridgeforth, Deanna Cherveny, Luke Berg, and Cory Hafer were all arrested in August by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office for multiple burglaries and arsons in northwest Livingston County. Soon after, the four were also charged with setting fire a vacant home west of Streator on Route 18 in La Salle County in May and later again in December.

As of now, Cherveny, Berg, Bridgeforth and Hafer haven’t been linked to any other suspicious fires in Streator.
