HUDSONVILLE (WHTC) - A 57-year-old postal worker who set fire to the American flags at Hudsonville City Hall and Veterans’ Memorial Park must pay back more than $4,300 in fines, court costs and restitution. William Howerton was sentenced Thursday by 58th District Judge Kenneth Post to 93 days in jail, plus $500 in fines and court costs and $3,854 in restitution. He received credit for 29 days served in jail and was released, but could end up back in jail to serve the full time if he doesn’t pay what he owes. Howerton, who was suspended from his postal job earlier this month, faces a separate charge of trying to set fire to a sign at a candle store in the Rivertown Crossings mall in Grandville.
