Versailles teen pleads guilty and is sentenced on Arson, Burglary charges

Wanda English Burnett

Cameron Powers, 18 of Versailles, pled guilty to Arson and Burglary on January 19 more than a year after Pat’s Bulk Foods, south of Versailles, was burglarized and burned in November of 2010. The business was considered a total loss.

Powers was just 17 at the time the crimes were committed, but was waived into adult court at a hearing on February 9, 2011.

Emily Huntington was absent from senior night at Jac-Cen-Del on Tuesday, January 31, but present in the hearts of those who gathered in her memory. The 18-year-old lost her life in a tragic vehicle accident on December 30.

The night was a huge success as a dinner event got underway to raise money for the Live...Laugh...Learn Scholarship Fund in memory of Huntington. The JCD senior was a forward/guard on the Lady Eagles team and was described as a wonderful, amazing person who was friends with everyone.
