HURON, S.D. (AP) - One of two Huron women charged in the case of a fire at the Tailgate restaurant in Huron has pleaded guilty to two charges as part of a plea deal.

KOKK-AM reports that 55-year-old Kathleen Wollman has pleaded guilty to the misprision of a felony or knowing a felony was being committed and not reporting it to law enforcement. More serious charges of second-degree arson and third-degree burglary were reduced to the single class one misdemeanor.

Wollman in court said she didn’t see co-defendant Julia Lopez start the fire, but acknowledged that she saw the flames and didn’t report the fire. Lopez earlier pleaded guilty to second-degree arson.

Wollman will spend 29 days in jail. She was fined $500 and will be responsible for paying back $143,000 in restitution.
