Thomasville-  A Cairo businessman found guilty of arson and mail fraud for torching his own hotel will spend the next 15 years in prison. 

Dexter Harrison was sentenced to 15 years in prison Thursday for his role in an arson at the Ramada Limited Motel in Donalsonville.  Recommended guidelines called for 84 to 97 months, but the government argued for more time because of the severity of the crimes.  Judge Hugh Lawson agreed, sentencing Harrison to 180 months or 15 years. 

Harrison was also ordered to pay 50-thousand dollars in fines.  Restitution will be decided at a later date.  The government asked for one million dollars.  Harrison's attorney will appeal.  Marty Harrell was also convicted, and will be sentenced next month.
