TEMPE, AZ - A former Tempe constable accused of burning down his home for insurance money has been sentenced to four months in jail and two years of supervised probation.
Maricopa County prosecutors say 31-year-old Jonathan Harold Irwin Levenson was sentenced Tuesday for conspiracy to commit arson after entering into a plea agreement.
Levenson was arrested last October and originally faced charges of conspiracy to commit arson of an occupied structure, conspiracy to commit fraud schemes and false reporting to law enforcement.
Levenson previously served as a Maricopa County Constable for the Kyrene Justice Court.
Tempe police allege that as part of the plan, Levenson was to be out of state when the home was burned and he wanted to time the arson with the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur.
