SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas woman pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Kristi Isom, 44 of Whitehouse, Texas, pleaded guilty to federal violations of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

Information presented in court revealed that in September 2011 Isom solicited someone to burn down a Whitehouse home. In court, Isom said that she advised the person of the general habits of the residents of the home, so that they could burn the house while it was unoccupied.

After the home was burned, the owner filed a claim for insurance. Isom was listed as a co-owner on the insurance policy and admitted that she endorsed a check for $2,500 from the account of "The Hartford Large Loss Organization." This check, one of several, was delivered by mail. The claim totaled $89.950.

Attorneys say Isom faces up to 20 years in federal prison at sentencing. A sentencing date has not been set.

This case is being investigated by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Criminal Investigation Division, the Smith County Sheriff’s Office, Smith County Fire Marshal, U.S. Postal Inspector’s Office and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jim Noble.
