Augusta - A jury in Maine rendered a verdict of guilty for a man who they believe set fire to a coffee shop where topless servers worked. It is believed that the man was angry that his ex-girlfriend worked at the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop.
According to the Bangor Daily News, prosecutors in the case told jurors that Raymond Bellavance Jr., the defendant, was jealous and angry that his ex-girlfriend was working there and was dating the shop's owner.
Bellavance has denied setting fire to the establishment which happened back in June 2009, according to the Miami Herald.
The Associated Press (via Yahoo! News) reports that a witness testifying against Bellavance stated that he saw him start the fire in the early hours of the morning.
The handful of people who were inside the coffee shop escaped without injury.
Bellavance could face up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced sometime next year.
