Green Bay, WI - The United States of America charged William A. Julius with arson.
William A. Julius (age: 57) of Green Bay and Menominee, Wisconsin, was found guilty of two counts of arson.
The evidence presented at trial proved that Julius set fire to a porch at 332 South Madison Street in downtown Green Bay just before 1:00 a.m. on August 20, 2017. Residents of the apartments located in the upper portion of the building were accounted for and an investigation by the fire department began. While the fire marshal continued his investigation into the first fire, Julius returned and lit another blaze in front of the main entrance, causing significant fire and smoke damage to the businesses located on the first floor. Julius was arrested shortly thereafter hiding under a vehicle a few blocks away.
Julius faces a mandatory five year prison term and could be imprisoned for up to 20 years. He also faces a fine of up to $250,000.
This case was investigated by the Green Bay Fire Department, the Green Bay Police Department, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).
Outcome: Defendant was found guilty.
