Forty-nine-year-old James Cleaver of Colorado Springs was also
ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch to pay two-point-two million dollars in restitution along with co-defendant Jack
Dowell.

The two were among five men accused of torching the IRS office
in Colorado Springs on May 3rd, 1997. The blaze destroyed the
office, injuring a firefighter and causing two-point-five
million dollars in damage.

Fifty-one-year-old Dowell was sentenced in April to 30 years in
prison for arson. His cousin, 52-year-old Thomas Dowell, was
acquitted.
