Hearing moved for alleged Community Corrections arsonist

Jonathan Ernesto Godoy
The preliminary Aug. 14 hearing set for Maryland resident Jonathan Ernesto Godoy was moved to Sept. 25 at 1 p.m. Godoy is charged with the fire-bombing and arson of the Loudoun County Community Corrections Office on Nov. 12, 2012.

Godoy was arrested last month after an investigation that lasted more than a year-and-a-half. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearams and Explosives served him with four felony warrants.

He is charged with conspiracy to commit a felony, arson of an unoccupied building and two counts creation and use of a bomb or explosive.

The Community Corrections Office, located in downtown Leesburg is a high-risk, county facility. It was bombed on Nov. 14, 2012. The fire caused an estimated $200,000 in damage. The office was forced to relocate on a temporary and prolonged basis.

Godoy was arrested Oct. 13, 2011, for possession of methadone, according to Loudoun records. He pleaded guilty April 2012 and was sentenced on March 11, 2013, to one year and six months of suspended time and two years probation.
