Hendrix was convicted in March 2016 of arson, criminal conspiracy and petit theft in Payette County. His conspiracy and arson charges stem from a February 2016 fire that burned down Payette High School principal Mark Heleker’s house. Hendrix was a middle school student at the time; the other three boys convicted in the case were high school students.
