Man sentenced to 4 years in Houston Christmas Day mosque fire

The man who pleaded guilty to arson in a fire at a mosque on Christmas Day in 2015 has been sentenced to four years in prison.

Gary Nathaniel Moore, who investigators say also used the name "Jamal" Moore, was in court today.

Prosecutors said just after the fire that Moore was seen on surveillance video leaving the building, and that authorities found lighter fluid at his home -- the same accelerant found in the mosque.
