Placeholder Image
A woman who failed to heed an officer’s warning and harbored a wanted felon now has her own criminal record.The woman, Charity S. Fults, 31, was placed on probation for six months by General Sessions Judge Bill Locke after she entered a plea agreement to the charge of obstruction of justice. She will also be required to pay $312 and perform 15 hours public service work.Her charges came after McMinnville patrolman Ben Cantrell went to Fults’ West End Avenue home searching for Don Carlos Perry, who was wanted on felony charges. The officer searched the apartment during his visit but did not find any trace of the fugitive.“I warned Ms. Fults to not harbor or conceal Mr. Perry if he were to come back to her residence because he had felony warrants against him,” Cantrell said in the warrant against Fults.Officer Cantrell returned to the Fults residence the next day in search of the felon and was surprised when the wanted man answered the door when he knocked.
