SYCAMORE – A Cortland man police said set fire to a portable toilet last year was sentenced to probation Tuesday.

During a hearing at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore, Richard J. Fioretto, 35, of the 200 block of West Ellen Avenue in Cortland, pleaded guilty to criminal damage to property.

He was arrested in July 2011 after a portable toilet was found on fire in a driveway in the 100 block of North Juniper Street in Cortland.

Fioretto was sentenced to two years of probation and 50 hours of community service. He also must pay more than $3,000 in fines and costs.

He was ordered to complete alcohol treatment as part of the plea agreement.
