Francisca Medina, wife of Texas Supreme Court Justice David Medina, pleaded not guilty to an arson charge in the matter of the fire that destroyed their house.
Francisca Medina is charged with first-degree felony arson and first-degree felony criminal mischief, as well as a state-jail felony charge of criminal mischief in connection with a fire that burned down the couple's Spring home last summer.
She is free on a total of $42,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court again on June 24, according to court staff.
If convicted of a first-degree felony, Medina faces a sentence ranging from probation to life in prison. A state-jail felony carries a maximum punishment of two years behind bars.
