The attorney for the man charged with setting a fire aboard the USS Miami said his case may be resolved without a grand jury indictment. The Portsmouth Herald reports that Attorney David Beneman has been meeting with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in hopes that a resolution will be made without the need for a grand jury trial for his client, Casey Fury. Fury is charged with intentionally setting fire to the nuclear submarine back in May while it was in dry dock at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, which caused over 400 million dollars in damage. Fury admitted to setting that fire which nearly destroyed the Miami, and a smaller one at the base a few weeks later.
