Boynton Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Jonathan Marc Steinberg, a 58-year-old convicted child rapist/landlord was jailed Monday after he reportedly lit a tenant's boxer shorts on fire because he was late with his rent payment.
According to Boynton police, Steinberg and his 52-year-old tenant/roommate, Ronald Rohde, got into an argument about overdue rent money.

Investigators say the men began arguing again when Steinberg threw alcohol on Rohde, who was wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts.
