Sprout's Inn arsonist sentenced

Alex Frieden, 19

The 19-year-old man who pleaded guilty to setting fire to Sprout's Inn in Quincy last March was sentenced Tuesday.

Alex Frieden was sentenced to 30 months probation.

He pleaded guilty to arson in September.

The fire at Sprout's broke out this past Easter morning.

Firefighters say Frieden set the fire in a pile of lumber at the front door of the building then under construction.

It caused minimal damage.

That was the second fire to strike Sprout's Inn on north 12th street.
