The man who tore up the Fieldale post office in Henry County will get some jail time.

Matthew Fitzgerald pleaded guilty to causing nearly 20 thousand dollars worth of damage in April.

That included breaking windows, computers, smashing fluorescent lights and setting off a fire extinguisher.

We learned today he was sentenced to three months in jail and has to pay all the money back. He told officers he was upset over a problem with his girlfriend.
