Woman gets up to 10 years for robbery, police endangerment


An 18-year-old Lancaster woman will serve up to 10 years in prison for robbing a man at gunpoint and for driving at responding police officers.

Jenine Morales was ordered to serve four to 10 years on counts including robbery, aggravated assault, and reckless endangerment. She pleaded guilty to the charges.

The district attorney’s office said Morales was 17 years old when she and others pulled guns on the man and took his cash, boots, and jacket in September 2017.

One of the robbers, Elias Brown, fired several shots. He is serving 6 to 12 years in prison.

Morales, who was charged as an adult, was driving the getaway car and sped up, prompting two officers on foot to veer out of the way to avoid being struck.
