Federal prosecutors charged a 35-year-old man accused of setting fire to the office of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday.

Shant Soghomonian, also known as Michael Soghomonian, was arrested on one charge of using fire to damage a building used in interstate commerce, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Vermont. The fire took place in Burlington, Vermont, on Friday. Soghomonian is facing up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. An initial court appearance for Soghomonian has not been set yet.

“Soghomonian was recorded on a security video spraying a liquid near the outer door of the office and then lighting the area with a handheld lighter. A blaze quickly began while Soghomonian departed via a staircase,” the statement said.
