Sister of man charged with murder gets prison
WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) — A judge has sentenced an Eclectic woman to prison for trying to help her brother escape from the jail where he's being held on a capital murder charge.
Circuit Judge Ben Fuller sentenced 21-year-old Jessica Caspari to more than two years in prison on Tuesday. She'll also have to spend three years on probation.
Caspari pleaded guilty to aiding an escape and promoting prison contraband.
She was accused of paying an Elmore County prisoner $500 to smuggle pieces of hacksaw blades to brother Josh Caspari of Tallassee. He's being held without bond in the February shooting death of Anna Cardwell.
Jessica Caspari was arrested in June. She was arrested again in August with another woman following another alleged attempt to get her brother out of jail.
