PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - An 18-year-old was sentenced to 45 days in jail after pleading guilty to arson for a fire at a Portland Police Bureau building.

Rollin Tristan Fodor entered his plea Wednesday. Fodor was initially arrested on an additional charge of riot, but that charge was dismissed.

Fodor was arrested in connection with a fire that was set at the North Precinct building on Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Killingsworth Street on June 26.

Police said the fire was started by suspects associated with a protest outside the building. According to a PPB timeline of events, a riot was not declared by law enforcement that night.

Gresham police and the Portland Fire & Rescue Investigation Unit located and arrested Fodor on July 7.

Another suspect, 22-year-old Gavoughn Streeter-Hillerich, was also subsequently arrested in connection with this investigation. Streeter-Hillerich is due in court Sept. 4.

As part of his sentencing, Fodor will serve three years of probation after his release from jail.

Should have been 18 years to life for the punk.

45 ... DAYS? This sentence should be expressed in YEARS!

Alexander Marinesko

45 days! And how much did he cost the taxpayers? When the crime is more fun or more profitable then the punishment - is that penility a "get out of jail free card"?


Should have been 2 years at the least

Portland is well-known for being "Tough On Crime."

So is this felony arson or misdemeanor arson? 45 days is not much of a deterrent. Is this one of those deals where it depends on whose property is being burned? Terrific Ted already said arson with someone inside the building is attempted murder.


What about restitution for any damage he caused?


How about making them pay for the damages they caused.


Put him in the army for 2 years.


They used to give that choice but no more.
