They said Meyer paid Brandon Deweerd to hire a third man to set fire to the vehicle.
Attorneys also accuse Chad Michael Blair of helping to arrange the theft and arson.
Deweerd was sentenced to five years of probation with four months of home confinement and a $1,000 fine.
Meyer got four years of probation with four months of home confinement and 60 hours of community service.
