  • A Leavenworth woman has been sentenced to a year of probation for an attempted obstruction charge for reportedly allowing an escaped inmate stay at her apartment, court records show.
    Amber D. Hall, 23, was sentenced Wednesday in Leavenworth County District Court for a charge of attempted obstruction of apprehension or prosecution. She pleaded no contest to the charge in January.
    The charge is connected to Raheem K. Armstead, who escaped from custody at the Leavenworth County Jail Dec. 29. He was apprehended Dec. 31.
    According to prosecution officials, Armstead had been found hiding in a closet in an apartment in the 700 block of North 13th Street. The apartment was the residence of Hall and a co-defendant, Joshua A. Showalter.
    Hall received a suspended six-month prison sentence Wednesday and was placed on probation for 12 months, according to court records.
    Armstead pleaded guilty in January to aggravated escape from custody. Sentencing in his case had been set for Feb. 22 but has been continued until March 22.
    Showalter pleaded no contest in February to an obstruction charge. His sentencing is scheduled for March 22.
