Lapwai Woman Admits to Concealing Person from Arrest
COEUR D'ALENE - Nicole Shannon Rose Two Moon, 30, of Lapwai, Idaho, pleaded guilty today in federal court in Coeur d’Alene to concealing a person from arrest, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Two Moon was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 18, 2014.
According to the plea agreement, Two Moon admitted that in April and May of 2014, she allowed Delbert George to stay at her house knowing a federal warrant had been issued for his arrest in March of 2014. Two Moon let him stay there to help George avoid detection on the warrant.
The charge of concealing person from arrest is punishable by up to five years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.
Sentencing is set for July 21, 2015, before U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge at the federal courthouse in Coeur d'Alene.
“I commend the collaborative efforts of law enforcement,” said Olson. “Harboring a fugitive is a serious crime which creates a potentially dangerous situation for all of those involved.”
The case was investigated by the Nez Perce Tribal Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
