Building structure on fireOXFORD, Miss. — A north Mississippi man was sentenced to nine years in federal prison this week after pleading guilty last year to a racially motivated arson.

Authorities said Wayne Allen Stoker Jr., 45, of Oxford, was also ordered Monday to pay $211,000 in restitution and will face three years of supervised release after he’s out of prison.

The U.S. attorney’s office for north Mississippi said that in pleading guilty, Stoker “admitted that the motivation for his crime was based on racial hatred.”

A news release from prosecutors Tuesday said Stoker was in “The Dam Bar” in Coffeeville when two black men entered and Stoker became “volatile” and had to be removed. Court documents said Stoker admitted returning later and setting the bar on fire.
