CADILLAC — A 37-year-old Cadillac woman is facing a felony charge alleging she harbored a known felon after she was arraigned recently in 84th District Court.
Lacie Amelia Strickland was charged with one count of harboring a felon for her connection with an incident on June 18 in Clam Lake Township. A habitual offender second offense notice was added to the charge which carries a penalty of 1.5 times the maximum sentence on the primary offense.
If convicted, Strickland faces up to six years in prison and $7,500 in fines.
The charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. Strickland is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Strickland was arrested and arraigned after it was believed she helped Leslie Robinson avoid arrest, according to a release from the Michigan State Police. Robinson is wanted for violating his parole and has been actively avoiding law-enforcement. Robinson is described as a white male, 6’04” tall and 230 pounds. He has blue eyes, brown hair, and was last known to have a beard.
