The guidance counselor who pleaded guilty to simple arson and simple burglary in connection with the fire at St. Helena Central High School in November of 2008 has been sentenced to five years hard labor.

District Attorney Scott M. Perrilloux confirmed the sentence Tuesday.

Lisa Cryer, 43, of Greensburg, revealed she had removed $8,933.74 in concession money proceeds from the school and assisted in starting the fire to cover-up the theft. She also testified she was assisted by Steven A. Warren, a friend from Mt. Herman.

Warren was sentenced to five years back in October for his part in the arson.
