TACOMA -- The sister of cop-killer Maurice Clemmons will not be re-tried on a charge of helping the getaway driver.
A rendering criminal assistance charge against LaTanya Clemmons was dismissed last month after the state Supreme Court refused to consider an appeal from Pierce County prosecutors.
She was convicted in 2010 of helping Dorcus Allen by driving him to a motel and giving him money for a bus ticket. She served two years of a five-year sentence.
The conviction was thrown out on appeal because prosecutors didn't prove she knew Allen was being sought as an accomplice in the 2009 slaying of four Lakewood police officers.
Her lawyer, Helen Whitener, told The News Tribune that Clemmons lives out of state and is trying to get her life back together.
