The arson conviction of a Sioux Falls woman has been upheld by the South Dakota Supreme Court. Jacqueline Krouse was found guilty by a judge, rather than a jury, of setting fire to her house in March 2019 for insurance money. Krouse appealed, saying the state did not provide adequate evidence that she set the fire or that she intended to defraud her insurance provider.
