Investigators believe the graffiti was intended as a distraction to make the arson appear politically motivated.  47-year old Andrew McClinton will be sentenced next month as a habitual offender because he was convicted of attempted armed robbery in 1997 and armed robbery in 2004 in another part of the state.
