A January sentencing date has been set for a former Southern Arkansas University student accused of stealing horses from the school's stables.

Jaci Jackson of Broken Bow pleaded guilty in August to four counts of conspiracy to commit theft of property, bringing stolen property across state lines, knowingly concealing stolen property and cruelty to animals.

Prosecutors say the horses were taken from the school in Magnolia, Ark., and were discovered in McCurtain County, Okla. One of the horses had been killed.

The Texarkana Gazette reports that Jackson is scheduled for sentencing Jan. 10 in Idabel. She faces up to 25 years in prison.

Jackson was charged in both Arkansas and Oklahoma courts. She pleaded guilty in Arkansas to conspiracy to commit theft and awaits sentencing.
