Kansas Woman Gets Probation for Aiding Convicted Rapist

Associated Press - May 24, 2016 10:30 am

A Kansas woman has been placed on three years of intensive supervised probation for aiding a man convicted of abducting, drugging and raping an 8-year-old girl.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that 24-year-old Michelle Lee Harris, of Topeka, was sentenced Monday for attempted kidnapping and obstruction of a felony.

She testified at the trial of Jeremy James Lindsey. He was sentenced to three consecutive life terms for removing a sleeping girl from her Topeka home in 2014 and transporting her in a car trunk. He raped her twice before calling Harris, who gave him and the girl a ride. Lindsey raped the child again before she managed to free herself and escape.

Harris says she didn’t question Lindsey because he sometimes became violent. Lindsey and Harris have a child together.
