Lawton man pleads guilty to arson

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - A Lawton man entered a blind guilty plea in a 2018 arson case.

31-year-old Julio Diaz pleaded guilty Thursday to second degree arson.

In September of 2018, Diaz set fire to a home on northwest 17th street. He reportedly ran from the scene after getting scared, failing to alert authorities or the people inside the building.

His sentencing has been set for the end of October, and he was given a reduced bond of $5,000.
