A 17-year-old boy who burned down Crestline Elementary School was sentenced Monday to 10 days in juvenile detention and ordered to pay $2 million in restitution.
The teen pleaded guilty to second-degree arson late last month.
Court documents showed he confessed to police about the fire in February 2013, saying he was at the school setting coats on fire.
Investigators said one of those coats ignited a bench next to the building. ATF officers said that fire quickly spread and turned into a three-alarm fire that burned down the entire school.
The teen's lawyer said that while the boy admits to setting coats on fire, he never intended to burn down the school.
His sentence includes 150 hours of community service and one year formal probation.
Around 500 students were initially split up to different schools within the district after the fire. Evergreen Public Schools then rented and renovated a nearby Hewlett-Packard facility for the 2013-2014 school year.
The new Crestline Elementary School is scheduled to open to students at the start of the 2014-2015 school year.
