Looks like it took almost four years from the crime to the sentence.
But finally they did convict her - which will set an example to others.
Arson is a crime that can be solved, she didn't get away with it.
I see they sentenced her to pay for the damage - Makes sense, but I wonder how she can ever do that?
Esp. since it says they filed for bankrupcy 6 months earlier. I think she cannot file again for seven years? I suspect insurance does not pay if it is arson.
Wonder what happened to the money that she borrowed?
Picture shows a new looking four door pickup in the driveway.
Q. Does anyone recall if her husband divorced her?
