BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The sentencing for Anthony Weaver, a homeless man who said he helped two former Birmingham police officers set fires in the Ensley area, has been moved to April 30.

Anthony Weaver pleaded guilty in 2013 to third degree burglary, conspiracy to commit arson and second degree arson.

Weaver and the two former Birmingham cops, Jason Arnold and Curtis Thornton, were charged with setting fire to a series of abandoned homes in west Birmingham in 2012.

Weaver accepted a plea deal and is expected to get 15 years for the class "C" felonies and 20 years for the class "B" felony.

Arnold pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree arson and was sentenced in March to six months in prison, plus three years of probation.

In June 2013, Thornton was convicted of six felonies: four counts of second degree arson, one count of attempted arson and one count of first degree criminal mischief. He was sentenced in July 2013 to serve 100 years in prison.
