Lisa Harrington Placed On House Arrest While Awaiting Sentencing

GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania woman awaiting sentencing on felony convictions of helping her cousin evade capture following a police officer's slaying has been released from custody to ensure the safety of her unborn child amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Tribune-Review reports that a judge ruled Friday that 33-year-old Lisa Harrington can live with her husband and three children until six weeks after she undergoes a C-section in June.

Harrington had been held without bond following her hindering apprehension, evidence-tampering and firearms convictions stemming from the November 2017 slaying of New Kensington officer Brian Shaw.
