BISMARCK, N.D. – A woman who helped prosecutors send her ex-husband to prison for ordering the deaths of two associates in the North Dakota oil patch, including a Spokane businessman, has been sentenced to probation for her role in their investment scheme.

Sarah Creveling pleaded guilty Monday to a felony conviction of conspiracy to commit mail fraud. She was accused of defrauding investors in a trucking company she owned along with her ex-husband, James Henrikson.

Henrikson is serving life in prison after being convicted in a murder-for-hire plot that resulted in the deaths of two former oil patch associates: Doug Carlile, who lived on Spokane’s South Hill, and Kristopher “K.C.” Clarke, a former employee in the trucking company.

Creveling was sentenced to three years of supervised probation and ordered to pay at least $342,500 in restitution and forfeit an oil and gas lease.
