TAMPA, FL. (AP) – A man from Florida accused of being in charge of a shop burning during
protests for George Floyd’s death.
Terrance Lee Haster Jr. pleaded guilty in court of damaging a building in Tampa by fire.
According to the statement made by the Ministry of Justice, it was stated that the criminal will
be tried with a prison sentence of 5 to 20 years.
Hester had faced a similar crime before. Last May, he threw a flaming piece of clothing
inside the Champs Sport store. The financial value of Hester’s damage to the store and its
surroundings is thought to be $ 1.25 million.
Champs Sports was one of the few stores damaged during the peaceful protests held after
George Floyd’s death. As the protests were taking place in Tampa’s area with a high
concentration of shops, the number of damaged stores was high.
Hester surrendered to the authorities in Oswego last July. A Tampa state attorney also
charged people and police officers who wanted to burn the stores on the night of the
Champs Sports store fire.
The date of the sentence has not been announced yet
