A Lowndes county case involving Hindering Apprehension of a Criminal was dismissed after we demonstrated to the state that the Defendant was not guilty. The police were looking for the Defendant’s boyfriend. Unknown to the Defendant, he had climbed through a window and was hiding in an upstairs bedroom. The Defendant was not at home at the time. Shortly after she arrived home, but before she had gone upstairs, the police knocked on the door and asked if he was there. She told them he was not. The boyfriend heard the police and thinking they had left, climbed back out the window where he was spotted by the police that were staking out the house. The Defendant was arrested. When we showed evidence to the DA that the Defendant had just arrived home and had no knowledge the boyfriend was there, the case was dismissed.
