Attorney accused of harboring fugitive
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) An Oklahoma attorney has been arrested on a felony charge for allegedly hiding her fugitive boyfriend after a judge ordered his arrest.
Shelley Lynne Levisay was charged Wednesday in Cleveland County for harboring David Gerdon last month. An affidavit says 38-year-old Gerdon had an outstanding arrest warrant in Pottawatomie County after failing to appear in court for several felony cases, including assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic abuse assault.
The court filing alleges investigators were told the 32-year-old attorney and Gerdon were in a relationship.
Levisay denies wrongdoing and says she was charged for political reasons.
