An Erie man waives his preliminary hearing this morning in court.
Thirty-year-old Carlos Diane Cruz waived his preliminary hearing this morning on charges in a fire at the Erie County Prison back in January.
Cruz was facing charges including arson, recklessly endangering and criminal mischief after starting a fire in his prison cell.
In December Cruz was sentenced up to 30 years in state prison. He was found guilty of robbery and gun charges in January after robbing Alfees Pizza and firing shots.
