Plea deal reached by church arson suspect

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A plea deal has been reached by a man accused of setting a Brazeau church on fire.

Drew Chirstensen entered guilty pleas to 3 arson counts on Friday. They involved these incidents:

- Oct. 26, 2009, at the Everbreeze Resort in Mountain - March 19, 2012, at the Klondike Church in Brazeau - July 8, 2012, at the Jaded Bar in Suring 

Each count carries federal prison time of 5 to 20 years. Christensen will be sentenced July 29 in federal court in Green Bay.

As part of the plea deal, which included dropping a fourth count, the parties agreed to recommend a 10-year sentence (two consecutive five-year sentences plus a five-year concurrent term). However, Judge William Griesbach is not bound by those terms.

No one was injured in the incidents.
