Man Says He's Sorry For Frankfort Arson

The man who admitted burning down a historic section of downtown Frankfort is sentenced to 5 and a half years in federal prison.

Stephen Malcolm plead guilty to a federal arson charge in October.
Malcolm has admitted to setting the fire in March 2007 at the Saint Clair Mall. The flames caused more than a million dollars in damage.

As part of his sentence, Malcolm must also pay nearly one million dollars in restitution to the fire victims. Wednesday, Malcolm told a judge he's sorry for what he did. While fire victims we spoke to say the sentencing brought them closure, they say Malcolm's apology seemed half-hearted.

Malcolm will get credit for the 14 months he's already served.
