Mom tries to help free son, ends up jailed


UPI News Service, 08/14/2007 

An Indiana woman, hoping to help her son, stood up in court and claimed to be his wife -- and that landed her in jail.

Christopher Crowe, 25, agreed to a plea bargain in Vanderburgh Superior Court after being charged with four felony counts: residential entry, domestic battery and two counts of resisting law enforcement.

He was sentenced to time served and a year's probation, and was to be released on his own recognizance Aug. 1.

When a judge routinely asked whether any victims in court disagreed with the plea deal, Crowe's mother stood up and claimed to be his wife, then said she did not disagree with the deal, the Evansville (Ind.) Courier & Press reported.

At first, court personnel just thought Rebecca Crowe, 47, of Evansville, Ind, looked a little old to be Crowe's wife. But when a deputy prosecutor went back to her office and reviewed photographs of Crowe's wife and mother, the whole thing unraveled.

Rebecca Crowe, when officers found her, was arrested on a contempt of court warrant. She's serving 30 days in jail.

Christopher Crowe was brought in and told he could not be released on his own recognizance. He is being held pending an Aug. 30 sentencing, the newspaper said.
