Keller woman gets year for helping to violate court order


A 35-year-old Keller woman was sentenced to one year of probation after she pleaded guilty in June to “Aiding and Abetting the Violation of a Lawful Court Order” in March and April, 2011.

Lisa Gabriel was an officer at the tribal corrections center in Nespelem then, when she allowed an inmate charged with domestic violence to call his victim on Gabriel’s cell phone, states a press release from U.S. Attorney Micheal Ormsby.

The inmate was under a Colville Tribal Court order not to contact the victim, but did so in two calls with Gabriel’s help, to coerce the victim into not testifying against him.

United States District Court Judge Lonnie Suko also ordered that Gabriel not apply for any law enforcement or corrections jobs for a year.
