MASON CITY, Iowa – A man is admitting to damaging a Clear Lake home.
31-year-old Christopher James Larson has reached a plea deal over an incident on April 28, where he allegedly did nearly $28,000 in damage to 705 South Shore Drive. Larson had reportedly been staying there for several days before the destruction.
He was charged with 1st degree criminal mischief but has agreed to plead guilty to 2nd degree criminal mischief. Court documents say the deal will make it easier for the victim to prove the value of his property when claiming restitution.
Larson will be sentenced on December 12.
