A former Kentucky State University student who set a dorm room on fire will not get out of jail early.
Prosecutors say 19-year-old Juanisha Feliciano was denied an early release after serving half of her 180-day sentence. She was sentenced as part of a plea agreement for starting a fire in Chandler Hall because she was mad at another girl.
She’s expected to be released from jail in March and has been accepted to nursing school. That’s why her attorney had asked for shock probation, but the judge noted that other people’s lives were at stake when the fire was set. That fire sent one student to the hospital.
