WOODSTOCK — A Woodstock man was sentenced Wednesday morning in Oxford County Superior Court for setting fire to two seasonal homes on Gore Road in 2015 that resulted in $500,000 damage.

Jordan Caldwell, 22, was sentenced to 11 years in prison, with all but three years and 12 days suspended. He has served enough time in prison since his arrest to cover the three years and 12 days.

Justice Lance Walker ordered Caldwell to serve four years of probation on the arson charge.

Caldwell will also be required to submit to random search and testing for alcohol, drugs, firearms and other dangerous weapons; complete substance abuse treatment; obtain the permission of his parole officer to enter West Paris; and pay $6,000 restitution to the homeowners.

According to an arrest affidavit by State Fire Marshal’s Office investigator Dan Young, in March 2015, Caldwell broke into 245 Gore Road, stole some items and set fire to the residence. The building burned to the ground.

Two months later, he did the same thing to the residence at 255 Gore Road, according to officials.
