CLEVELAND (AP) - An East Cleveland police officer has been convicted for enabling a family friend to escape from police custody.
Shawna Glaspy was convicted yesterday on charges of unauthorized use of a computer, tampering with records and obstructing justice. She could receive up to six years in prison.
Glaspy ran Brian Allen's background check with a false name and gave him a handcuff key on March 26th of last year.
When Allen -- who was being booked on a burglary charge -- took off, Glaspy said over the police radio that he had overpowered her and escaped.
When Allen found out, he turned himself in and told authorities what Glaspy had done.
