Iowa man who sets LGBTQ flag on fire gets over 15 years in prison

Adolfo Martinez was sentenced to prison Wednesday for multiple charges related to burning an LGBTQ flag.

Martinez admitted to police that he stole the flag from church and burned it because he opposed homosexuality.

He received 15 years for the hate crime of arson, one year for the reckless use of explosives or fire and 30 days for harassment.

Story County court records showed the sentences are to be served consecutively.
