Courts > Incident occurred in March, Weiss sentenced to probation

By Tris DeRoma

Rachel Ann Weiss, a 24-year-old Los Alamos woman, was recently sentenced for her part in helping an 18-year-old girl run away from home in March.
According to court documents, police arrived at the girl’s residence March 20 in response to her parents reporting her missing. When police arrived, the parents told her their daughter was supposed to show up at her grandparent’s house for homeschooling. They told police they think she left their house some time that night.
Police interviewed the girl’s ex-boyfriend, who told police that the girl stopped by his house around 12:30 a.m. to say “goodbye,” but that was all he knew.
The ex-boyfriend told police he could not tell the person that was driving the car she arrived in was a man or woman. Police did interview Weiss also, but she claimed she had no knowledge of where the girl was.
A closer inspection of the girl’s cell phone records suggested otherwise.
In an exchange of Facebook messages, police worked out that Weiss had full knowledge of the girl’s plans to run away and where she was going. She also helped her run away, police said in court documents.
