AUBURN — A Livermore Falls woman accused of offering $4,000 to burn down her convenience store so she could collect the insurance money has pleaded guilty.
Erica Poland-Rolfe was sentenced Monday to serve 90 days of a two-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to aggravated criminal mischief.
Prosecutors say she offered money to burn down the JP Corner Store in Livermore Falls in July 2011 so she could collect the insurance money and open a day care center.
The Sun Journal reports that Nicole Hennessy of Wilton also pleaded guilty Monday to aggravated criminal mischief. Prosecutors say she supplied the gasoline and acted as a lookout for a man who unsuccessfully tried to burn the store. Sentencing is scheduled for March.
The man who tried to burn the building has been convicted.
