Firefighter To Serve 7 Years

July 10th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News report that former Baltimore Pike volunteer firefighter Patrick Levi Kneisley, 24, of Cumberland, was sentenced to seven years in prison for four arson-related charges in Allegany County Circuit Court on Friday afternoon. In accordance with a plea agreement Kneisley entered June 4, Circuit Judge W. Timothy Finan sentenced Kneisley to 23 years and six months in prison, but suspended all but seven years. That sentence was in excess of the sentencing guidelines of the state of Maryland. Kneisly will also be placed on five years of supervised probation after he serves his prison sentence. Kneisley was also ordered to pay $7,409.62 in restitution to victims in the case. Allegany County State's Attorney Michael Twigg prosecuted the case, and Public defender David Schram represented Kneisley.
