Woman who provided refuge for police shooter takes plea deal

Woman who provided refuge for police shooter takes plea deal

The Ithaca woman who provided a brief refuge for the man who shot and wounded Ithaca Police Officer Anthony Augustine pleaded guilty to attempted false reporting to a police officer in court Friday.

Jamel Booker—the Ithaca man who shot Officer Augustine last October— fled to Kimberly Harden’s West Hill apartment the night of the shooting.

Harden’s attorney argued that, at the time, she was unaware that Booker had shot Augustine.

Under the plea deal, Harden will not serve any additional jail time. She had previously served nine days in jail following the shooting.

Booker is set to be sentenced June 28 on multiple counts, including aggravated assault of a police officer.
