June 20 – Trevor Chapman was arrested and charged with arson after police and firefighters responded to Mission of Hope in February.

He also alleged that Chapman admitted to setting the fire, saying “the place is full of the cartel”.
Chapman had a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 1 before Judge Katherine Thomas, but he waived his right to have one. Chapman was tied to the arraignment in the trial court.
He returns to court on Tuesday morning to be arraigned in district court.
