A North Platte woman was sentenced Monday to 12 months probation after being convicted of attempted arson.
Royalene Hernandez, 43, pleaded guilty in June to attempted second-degree arson after prosecutors lowered her charges in exchange for the plea.
Hernandez was arrested April 2 after firefighters were sent to her home to battle a carpet fire. Prosecutors say Hernandez started the fire so another resident would leave.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
