Pottstown Woman Sentenced to Prison for Intimidating Witness on Facebook

Twenty four-year old Alisha “Li Li” Harmon was sentenced to two to five years on charges of intimidation of a witness and conspiracy to intimidate a witness.

According to The Mercury, a 24-year-old Pottstown woman and single mother is headed to prison after being convicted of intimidating a witness through posts on Facebook.

A judge sentenced Alisha "Li Li" Harmon to two to five years in state prison for intimidating a witness who was to testify against her ex-boyfriend, Emanuel Uriah Sumner. Sumner allegedly shot a Philadelphia man in Pottstown in 2010 as part of what authorities are reportedly calling a turf war between Philadelphia and Pottstown gangs.

"Facebook is more powerful than television," said Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill, according to The Mercury. "It's more powerful than radio. You put it out there for the whole world to see."

Sumner and another defendant, Myles "Miff" Germany, have already pleaded guilty to conspiring to the intimidation and have already been sentenced.
