CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A jury in Corpus Christi has acquitted a woman who was accused of helping her brother in 2008 fake his drowning in the Gulf of Mexico.
Katherine Tate was charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution of a known felon.
Larry James Tate Jr. was reported missing on Sept. 22, 2008, while swimming off Port Aransas (uh-RAN'-zuhs), but was later arrested in Arkansas.
He pleaded guilty in 2009 to two counts of incest in an Arkansas case that involved a stepdaughter and was sentenced to seven years in prison.
Katherine Tate was acquitted last week.
