    Woman Pleads Guilty to Maine Fire That Destroyed 3 Vehicles

    A woman has pleaded guilty to setting a fire that destroyed three vehicles in Maine.

    U.S. Attorney Halsey Frank says that 31-year-old Jaymi Hutchins pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court to damaging and destroying by fire property used in interstate commerce.

    Hutchins is formerly of Gilead, Maine and Rochester, New Hampshire. Her attorney didn't immediately respond to request for comment.

    Hutchins faces between five and 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. She will be sentenced after the completion of an investigation report by the U.S. Probation Office.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Frank says court records say that Hutchins on Oct. 25, 2016 set fire inside a vehicle in the parking lot of a Maine vehicle towing, recovery, repair and sales business.

    The fire destroyed three vehicles including a commercial wrecker.
