Woman Accused in Church Arson Pleaded Guilty Monday

| December 4, 2012

Tina Meyer, who was originally charged with first-degree arson for setting a fire at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in September pleaded guilty to reduced charges Monday.

Meyer pleaded guilty to second-degree arson, a Class C felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The first-degree arson charge Meyer originally faced carried a 25-year sentence. A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for late January.

Meyer has been in jail since her arrest in September. She requested a bond reduction, which was denied.

Meyer's estranged husband said during a bond review hearing that Tina Meyer would be a danger to herself if she was released from jail.
