PITTSFIELD — It’s unclear why a pair of Pittsfield men allegedly participated in the burning of a set of red doors at St. Joseph’s Church.

But a defense attorney says he certainly wasn’t part of any grand plot.

“This was not some nefarious plot or master idea, it’s just a situation where someone wanted to set something on fire, and my client decided to go along with it,” said Raymond Jacoub, Michael Innis’ attorney.

Innis and Brock Randolph are accused of burning down a pair of North Street church doors on August 21.
