Marc Bagnell will serve one year in jail and three years probation, according to Fire Marshal Lewis Broschard, of the Contra Costa Fire Protection District.

A Concord man has been convicted for arson in what ConFire says was a domestic violence incident on Oct. 28, 2011 in Concord

Marc Bagnell, 41, was convicted Feb. 28 to one year in jail and three years of probation, according to ConFire.

Bagnell was originally charged with attempted murder, arson causing great bodily injury, arson to the home, arson using gasoline and animal cruelty, according to a news release.

No details about the dropped attempted murder and animal cruelty charges were immediately available.
