Commonwealth v. Holt

The Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed the appellant’s conviction for hindering apprehension or prosecution in connection with her son’s high-profile murder of a police officer. The appellant was convicted under Section 5105(a)(5), which prohibits “provid[ing] false information to a law enforcement officer.” The Court found that Commonwealth presented sufficient evidence by showing that the appellant had seen her son right before being questioned by law enforcement but told investigators that she had not seen him in weeks.
