SALINA – (December 18, 2019) – A Salina woman has pleaded guilty to arson and conspiracy to commit arson, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.
Sandra Ann Davis, 51, this week pleaded guilty in Saline County District Court to one felony count of arson and one felony count of conspiracy to commit arson. Chief Judge Rene Young accepted the pleas and scheduled sentencing for March 9, 2020, at 11 a.m. An investigation by the Saline County Sheriff’s Office found that in January 2018, Davis conspired with a co-defendant to set fire to a residence as a part of a plan to collect insurance proceeds for the residence. Davis eventually set fire to the residence, resulting in a total loss.
Charges remain pending against the co-defendant in the case. Criminal charges are merely accusations; individuals are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Assistant Attorney General Paul Brothers of Schmidt’s office is prosecuting the case.
