Charles City teen gets deferred judgement on train car arson and criminal mischief

A Charles City teen, who was arrested back in March for starting a train car fire and damaging vehicles near the avenues, has just received a deferred judgement on his charges.

Charles Armstrong Jr. was charged with 2nd degree arson and 2nd degree criminal mischief and pleaded guilty to both in May. He was then ordered to serve a probation of 3 to 5 years. 

Though this week, the Floyd County District Court awarded Armstrong a deferred judgement on his charges – which means if he meets all of the terms of his probation, then all of the charges will be wiped clean from his record. 

As a part of his sentence terms, Armstrong is being made to pay $12,894 as retribution for the damages he caused to vehicles and train cars.
