The teen charged in the arson of the Lancaster County Courthouse last August won’t be tried by local court officials.
Sixth Circuit Solicitor Doug Barfield said he won’t prosecute Martavious Carter, 17.
Carter has been charged with two counts of arson for fires set at the 180-year-old courthouse, which was still being used as a court facility, and at Barfield’s office across the street.
Barfield said 16th Circuit Solicitor Kevin Brackett will try the case.
