Kingman woman sentenced for aiding jail break

KINGMAN, Ariz. — A woman who helped her husband flee from jail by hiding
handcuff keys in a Kingman courtroom has been sentenced to 15 months in prison.

The Kingman Daily Miner reported that Ashley Morrison
apologized at her sentencing Wednesday to Judge Derek Carlisle for slipping the
keys in between the cushions of chairs in the judge’s courtroom where inmates
sit to wait for their hearing.

She pleaded guilty in July to conspiracy to commit escape.

Authorities said Morrison hid keys under chairs in the courtroom a month before
her husband, Darren Morrison, escaped in January.

The inmate freed himself from shackles and handcuffs as he exited a transport
van.

He was captured more than five days later.

Ashley Morrison told the judge at sentencing that she was divorcing her
husband.
