    NEWPORT — A Vermont woman has pleaded guilty to burning down a campsite in retaliation against a drug informant.

    Twenty-one-year-old Rebecca Ray of Barton received a three-year deferred sentence Tuesday in Orleans Superior Court.

    Ray was accused of setting fire to an unoccupied camp last summer in Brownington that belonged to a witness in a federal prosecution. Ray believed the man gave federal authorities information regarding drug sales involving her now-husband, Matthew Prue, who was arrested on a drug charge and faces sentencing in March, the Caledonian Record reports.

    As part of Ray’s plea agreement, a count of intimidating a witness in a federal prosecution was dismissed. Her sentence includes community service.
