Harrington reaches plea agreement in Reach Inc. arson case

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The Minnesota woman accused of setting the fire that destroyed the Reach Inc. building has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Court records show that Brandy Harrington, 28, of St. Paul entered a no contest plea to Arson of a Building Without the Owners Consent on Wednesday, and was found guilty. Four other charges were dismissed, but will be considered at sentencing. Investigators say Harrington lit fires that burned down the building and a garage on Whipple Street in Eau Claire in September 2013. Officers said she had no ties to the organization.

Sentencing is scheduled for November 13.
