Woman who helped Trev Jackson pleads guilty
A York City woman who helped an alleged would-be cop killer pleaded guilty to hindering apprehension on Thursday, according to online court records.
Cathilia Laureano, 24, of 337 W. Market St., entered a negotiated plea agreement and was sentenced to 34 days to 18 months in York County Prison, which amounts to a time-served sentence, records indicate.
Laureano was one of three women accused of helping Trev Bowies Jackson II, 25, after he allegedly shot at Northern York County Regional Police Officer Lynn Anderson in November 2015, police said.
Along with Laureano, Cristina Lissette Perez, 23, and Xeomarie Velez-Quinones, 33, were accused of helping Jackson.
The background: Jackson allegedly fired a pistol three times directly at Anderson's face during a traffic stop at 10 p.m. Nov. 22, 2015, along Route 30 in Manchester Township.
Anderson dived out of the way and avoided being shot, then returned fire and wounded Jackson in the left hand as Jackson fled in a vehicle, police have said.
Police say Perez was a passenger in the car during the incident.
Jackson escaped capture until he was arrested April 29 in Philadelphia, police said. He was denied bail after being arrested.
Laureano, Jackson's on-again/off-again girlfriend, was charged on March 3.
Police have said Laureano bandaged Jackson's wounds, gave him clothing, disposed of his clothing and arranged a ride for Jackson with Velez-Quinones.
Laureano admitted Jackson showed up at her door injured and that she cleaned his wound, wrapped it in a pair of tights and called Velez-Quinones in a panic, Deputy U.S. Marshal Philip R. Lewis III testified during Velez-Quinones' preliminary hearing.
Velez-Quinones is accused of giving Jackson a ride after the shooting, according to police.
Kyle King, spokesman for the York County District Attorney's Office, said the office would not comment on Laureano's case because the other three related cases — Jackson's, Perez's and Velez-Quinones' — are still active.
Deputy chief public defender Erin S. Thompson, who is listed as Laureano's attorney, did not immediately respond to a phone message left Thursday afternoon.
