SD Arsonist Gets Jail Time For Probation Violation

A man convicted as a teenager of breaking into a Rapid City home and setting it on fire to cover up the crime has been ordered to serve 90 days in jail for violating probation.

Shye Archambault was given a suspended prison sentence in 2009 and put on probation. He admitted to violating probation by drinking alcohol.

Archambault was 16 years old when authorities say he and an accomplice in 2008 broke into a home while drunk to try to find things to pawn and set the home ablaze in an attempt to cover up fingerprints. The fire destroyed the home. Archambault was tried as an adult.
