An environmental activist who committed arson at Michigan State University in 1999 is now ordered to pay more than $4 million in restitution, a federal judge decided Monday.

Frank Ambrose, 33, of Detroit was sentenced Oct. 20 to nine years in federal prison. He and Marie Mason committed arson at MSU’s Agriculture Hall on New Year’s Eve 1999 to protest genetic-crop research in the name of the radical Earth Liberation Front.

They also admitted to tree spikings in Indiana and fires at four homes under construction in the Detroit area.
