SEATTLE - A woman accused of helping Lakewood police shooter Maurice Clemmons on Thursday pleaded guilty to rendering criminal assistance.

Quiana Williams said she never wanted to drag the families of the four slain officers through a long and drawn out trial.

Williams picked up Clemmons in Seattle after he gunned down the officers last November. She took him to her home, helped bandage his wounds, and then drove him to another part of Seattle and dropped him off.

Relatives of the victims had a message for Williams.

"You should have never agreed to help him, it's not like he came to you after robbing a corner store and needed help he just got done murdering four people," said Rhonda LeFrancois.

"I regret the day I met Maurice Clemmons," Williams said. "My life has not been the same nor will it ever be."

Williams is now facing five years in jail.

Four other people charged with assisting Clemmons are due to go on trial next month.
