Pittsburgh Police say Jennifer Busia is also charged with receiving stolen property, stalking and conspiracy.

Authorities say the 41-year-old Collier woman exchanged more than 90 phone calls with her boyfriend, who is awaiting trial on charges including rape, child rape and aggravated assault. They say the pair conspired to have Busia move his car to her garage, along with a backpack full of money hidden inside the car, which she moved into her house.

The calls were recorded by the jail.

Busia is a clerk for the Allegheny County Orphan’s Court. It wasn’t known Saturday if she’s retained an attorney.
