Harboring18 USC 1071No Familial Exception
Section 1071 contains no exception for familial relationships between
harborer and the fugitive. The courts have unanimously refused to recognize
an exception. See, e.g., United States v. Pittman, 527 F.2d
(4th Cir. 1975), cert. denied, 424 U.S. 923 (1976) (wife harbored
husband); Blankenship v. United States, 328 F.2d 19 (5th Cir. 1964)
(brother harbored brother); United States v. Graham, 487 F. Supp.
(W.D.Ky. 1980) (father harbored son); United States v. Oley, 21 F.
281 (E.D.N.Y. 1937) (wives harbored husbands).|
