Public Defender Appointed for Pana Man Accused of Home Invasion and Arson

A public defender has been appointed in the case of Brian Ferguson, who is currently facing charges of home invasion, aggravated arson, and domestic battery after an incident in Pana in November, where he allegedly entered a neighbors home, cut his own throat with a knife, and set fire to his neighbor’s home.


Originally Ferguson had elected to represent himself in the matter, but made the motion for a public defender after a motion to reduce bond was denied on December 2nd. The court appointed a public defender to represent Ferguson in the case, and set a date for a first appearance with counsel for December 9th.
