Lorna Roxanne Green, 22, pled guilty to arson of a building used in interstate commerce, specifically the Wellspring Health Access Clinic located in Casper, Wyoming. Green entered her guilty plea before U.S. District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson on July 20, 2023. She was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service following the hearing.
At the hearing, Green admitted that she set fire to the clinic on May 25, 2022, which was under construction at the time and planned to offer OB/GYN services, gender-affirming care and abortion procedures. Green was arrested on March 21, 2023, and then indicted by the federal grand jury in May.
Green is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Johnson on October 6, 2023. Green faces a minimum of five years in prison, a maximum of 20 years in prison, up to a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release following her incarceration, a $100 special assessment and restitution. Judge Johnson will determine Green’s sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
This crime was investigated by the Casper Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
