The woman who plead no contest to second-degree arson for the fire that destroyed Lincoln Public School District headquarters exactly one year ago was sentenced Wednesday to 8-12 years in prison.
Sharon Brewster will have to serve at least four years before being eligible for parole. She had made a plea deal. In exchange the prosecution did not seek restitution.
Authorities said Brewster, a district employee at the time, set fire to papers on a supervisor's desk last May 30th over frustration about how she was being treated.
Groundbreaking was held Tuesday on a new headquarters for Lincoln Public Schools.
