Plea deal offered to girlfriend of Geneseo traffic stop fugitive
Geneseo, N.Y. (WHAM) - A plea deal has been offered to the girlfriend of the fugitive accused of pointing a gun at a Geneseo Police officer back in July.
Sandra Brown was offered a plea deal Thursday by the Livingston County District Attorney's Office. She is charged with menacing a police officer, unlawful possession of marijuana and possession of stolen property.
Brown will be offered four years in state prison and 18 months of post-release supervision.
On July 18, a Geneseo Police officer stopped a car in which Brown was riding with her boyfriend, David Clyde Morgan. Brown is accused of pointing a cell phone at the Geneseo police officer and coordinating with Morgan "to pull a gun on (the officer) to allow them the ability to flee from the traffic stop on foot," according to court paperwork.
Morgan escaped, while Brown was quickly taken into custody.
For two months, a large scale manhunt ensued in Livingston County, with multiple law enforcement agencies sweeping swaths of land to search for Morgan. Morgan was on federal probation after serving a 14-year prison sentence for conspiring to sell methamphetamines in Texas.
Earlier this month, law enforcement said the search for Morgan has shifted to a recovery effort.
The next hearing for Brown is scheduled for October 25 in Livingston County Court.
