Story highlights

  • Raymon Carter, 24, is sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $500,000 in restitution
  • The burning of the CVS was one of the most memorable moments from the Baltimore riots this past spring

(CNN)The man accused of setting fire to a CVS pharmacy in Baltimore during riots in April was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $500,000 in restitution Tuesday, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Maryland.

Raymon Carter, 24, who previously pleaded guilty to rioting, also faces three years of supervised released after his prison time.
Riots broke out in the wake of the April death of Freddie Gray, who suffered a fatal spinal cord injury while in police custody.
    The death of the young African-American man sparked widespread protests and reignited long-simmering tensions between the police and residents.
    The burning of the CVS was one of the most visual and memorable moments from the riots.
    Carter was identified by citizens after authorities released photographs from surveillance video and announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to his identification and conviction. He was arrested after a foot chase and later reached a plea agreement.
