Former Oklahoma County prosecutor charged with harboring fugitive
Mark Blasdel, 64, accused of hiding legal assistant facing embezzlement charge from authorities.
The warrant was signed by a judge in September, court records show.
Blasdel said he was taking a nap and had not seen Crislip, according to the affidavit. A search revealed Crislip was hiding in a locked office Blasdel told deputies he didn't have the key.
Crislip was arrested and released from the Oklahoma County jail the following day. She could not be reached for comment Monday.
Crislip told an investigator she believed the car she is accused of taking — a 2012 Hyundai — was part of her compensation, police reported.
Blasdel declined to comment Monday. The attorney's website states he has more than 30 years of legal experience, including time as an assistant district attorney.
