By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer A 30-year-old Hagerstown man - who told friends he had "nothing better to do" the morning of Jan. 25 than set fire to the House of Kobe - was found guilty of second-degree arson Tuesday in Washington County Circuit Court. Kevin Augustus Cotton is facing a maximum 20-year sentence on the arson with three years more possible for a second conviction of destruction of property. Currently on parole for a prior arson conviction, Cotton has 4 1/2 years backup time in that case, according to Assistant Washington County State's Attorney Susan Lochbaum.
