EL DORADO, Ark. (AP) — An El Dorado man has pleaded guilty to attempted arson and jury tampering in connection with an effort to burn an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission officer's vehicle.
Court records show 48-year-old Harold Scott Otwell was sentenced to a total of 10 years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday as part of a plea agreement in which a conspiracy charge was dismissed.
Court documents say Otwell became a suspect in the June 2018 attempt to burn the officer's vehicle because he was under investigation by the Game and Fish Commission.
Details of the commission investigation were not released.
