FRANKLIN COUNTY — A Blue Ridge Summit woman faces 12 third-degree felony charges for allegedly helping a Franklin County Jail inmate escape and then lying to police about his whereabouts.
Allison Marie Hundly, 35, was charged last Friday with a total of 12 counts of hindering the apprehension of a fugitive. Three of those charges are for harboring or concealing John Adam Kint Jr., 28, also of Blue Ridge Summit. Three are for providing aid to Kint while he was on the run last April. Three are for warning Kint and three were for giving law enforcement false information about Kint’s whereabouts.
Police allege in charging documents that Huntley picked Kint up at the restaurant where he was working under the jail’s work-release program at about 2 p.m. April 9.
But instead of taking Kint back to the jail, she instead drove him to Ft. Ritchie, Maryland, where he dropped him off, according to an affidavit filed in the case.
Kint was serving an 11-23 month jail sentence at the time, according to court records. He was just a few days over two oaths into that sentence when he failed to return to the jail after finishing his shift at the restaurant the day of his escape.
By 4 p.m. Hundley went back home after dropping Kint off at Ft. Ritchey. She answered a call from Kint’s probation officer but denied knowing where he was, according to the affidavit.
Police allege in the court document that she then returned to Ft. Ritchey in a different vehicle and took Kint to a different location in Maryland and spent several days with him before returning home.
She was interviewed by police on April 18 at the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Chambersburg and released.
According to the affidavit, Hundley used another vehicle to take Kint to another Maryland location on April 30, where she then left that vehicle.
Police allege that each time Hundley interacted in Kint she willingly helped him avoid apprehension and updated him on the police efforts to capture him.
She knew there was a warrant for his arrest and was under no duress, but willingly helped him avoid capture, police allege in the charging document.
Hundley is free on $25,000 unsecured bail. Her preliminary hearing i set for 1 p.m. July 2.
Kint is back in jail after being captured on May 10. He waived a preliminary hearing June 4 on a felony escape charge and his latest case was transferred to the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas.
His formal arraignment on the escape charge is set for 1 p.m. May 26.
