Caspari sister pleads guilty to attempting to help her brother escape from jail | Crime
ELMORE CO., AL (WSFA) - The sister of an accused capital murder suspect pleaded guilty today for trying to help him escape from the Elmore County Jail.
Jessica Caspari pleaded guilty to escape and promoting prison contraband first-degree. She will be sentenced by Judge Fuller on October 23.
Jessica's brother Josh Caspari is being held at the Elmore County Jail charged with capital murder, theft of property, escape and promoting prison contraband relating to the February 15 death of Anna Cardwell.
Jessica was arrested on two separate occasions for trying to facilitate her brother's escape from custody.
The guilty plea references Caspari's first attempt back in June. Jessica pleaded guilty to paying an inmate on work release from the Elmore County Jail to smuggle hacksaw blades to her brother in his cell.
Jessica and another woman were arrested for Jessica's second alleged attempt after she was reportedly caught giving details regarding the back of the jail to her brother over the phone. Caspari has not yet been indicted on details relating to the second arrest.
