TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A Tampa woman will spend a year in federal prison for concealing information from authorities about Dontae Morris, a man accused in the slayings of two police officers in 2010.
The Tampa Tribune (http://bit.ly/11dm1Zj ) reports Cortnee Brantlee was sentenced in federal court Monday.
She had faced a maximum of three years in prison but the penalty ranged down to probation for her conviction on the rarely charged crime of misprision of a felony, concealing from authorities that Morris was a felon in possession of a weapon and ammunition.
On June 29, 2010, Tampa police officers Dave Curtis and Jeff Kocab were shot to death after they stopped Brantley's car in Tampa. Morris was in the passenger seat and is accused of shooting both officers to avoid arrest on a warrant.
