Jefferson County woman admits to burning clothes, garage

Local News

The Jefferson County woman who was so upset with her roommate she lit her clothes on fire, which ended up nearly burning down a garage, has admitted to the crime.

According to 7 News, 25-year-old Secret Goforth pleaded guilty to the fourth-degree arson and second-degree reckless endangerment. Back in November, Goforth set the clothes on fire inside a bin in the garage of a LeRay street residence.

She then took a photo of the blaze before putting it out. A short time later, though, the clothes reginted, causing extensive damage to the garage. Goforth will be sentenced later this spring.
