Redby woman receives 2-year prison term for hiding boyfriend wanted in shooting


DULUTH – A 22-year-old Redby woman received a two-year prison term Wednesday for attempting to hide a suspect from federal law enforcement.

Jerilee Jane Head previously was convicted for being an accessory after the fact.

According to the indictment and the evidence presented at trial, Head assisted her boyfriend, Donald Leigh Clark Jr., in his attempt to elude authorities. Clark was hiding from law enforcement after being charged with the Nov. 3, 2010, killing of one man and the wounding of two others on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

Officers found Clark hiding under a blanket in the back seat of Head’s vehicle on Jan. 15, 2011, after Head had tried but failed to lure federal agents away from the car, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

In February, Clark, 23, of Redby was sentenced to 10 years in prison for discharging a firearm during the commission of a crime of violence, a charge stemming from the shooting of Julian Keith DeMarrias.
