Sharmeka Moffitt of Winnsboro has plead guilty to terrorizing and other charges after setting herself ablaze in October of last year, and blaming it on white racists.

Moffitt had previously pled not guilty to charges of terrorizing and filing a false police report in April of this year. Her attack, in which she claimed she was attacked by three men in white hoodies who set her on fire, had many Franklin Parish residents outraged and scared. For the record, La. State Police say they found her fingerprints on the cigarette lighter and the charcoal fluid found at the scene. Moffitt suffered serious burns over half her body.

Moffitt will serve at least 5 years in prison and has been ordered to pay over a $1,000.00 in fines.
