MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The second Milwaukee brother convicted of his role in a fire that caused $50 million in damage is scheduled to be sentenced.
Twenty-5-year-old Kurtis J. Popp pleaded guilty last month to a felony charge of endangering public safety.
Prosecutors on Monday will recommend a sentence of up to a year in jail and three years probation, plus a prison sentence if he violates the terms of probation.
Popp's brother was sentenced on a similar charge this month. Twenty-3-year-old Joshua J. Popp will serve 90 days in jail and perform 500 hours of community service.
The brothers launched a military flare in July that landed on the roof of a meatpacking plant in a Milwaukee suburb. It sparked a fire that burned for four days. No one was hurt.
