Long Prison Term in Planned Parenthood ArsonSubmitted: 02/15/2013
GREEN BAY - A man who set a fire at a Planned Parenthood building in Grand Chute has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

Francis Grady apologized to employees at Planned Parenthood before he was sentenced in federal court in Green Bay Today.

Grady was convicted of arson last summer and told investigators that voices of children in his head told him to start the fire.

Abortions are performed at the Grand Chute facility.

Grady said he used a hammer to break a window at the clinic, then poured gas from a plastic bottle and used a lighter to ignite a small fire.

No one was injured in the fire last April.
