A homeless man charged for a January fire that badly damaged a mosque in Bellevue pleaded guilty Friday morning to first-degree reckless burning in King County Superior Court. Isaac Wayne Wilson, 37, was originally charged with second-degree arson and held on $1 million bail for the Jan. 14 fire at the Islamic Center of the Eastside. In a plea deal Friday, Wilson pleaded guilty to the lowered charge of reckless burning and an unrelated malicious mischief charge. According to court documents, Wilson has a lengthy criminal record with at least 26 prior convictions, most of them misdemeanors.
