October 27, 2011

A man who pleaded guilty to playing a role in cases of stolen vehicles and arson in the Madison, S.D., area earlier this fall has been sentenced to three years in prison for that and for a burglary last year.

The Madison Daily Leader reports that 19-year-old Alan Olson also must pay a total of about $15,000 in restitution.

Olson and two others were accused of stealing two vehicles and setting them on fire in August. Olson in September pleaded guilty to arson and accessory to grand theft. He also was convicted of burglary in the December 2010 incident.
