HARRISBURG, Pa. — A Pennsylvania woman who forced a friend who took her in to drive to an automatic teller machine faces up to five years in prison.

Thirty-two-year-old Angela Jackson was sentenced in Dauphin County on Tuesday to serve two-and-a-half to five years in state prison. Pennlive.com reports (http://bit.ly/2xfnw1M ) Jackson pleaded guilty to charges of robbery, making terroristic threats and false imprisonment in June.

Police say she was charged in October after the victim awoke with Jackson holding a cellphone charging cord around her neck and threatening the woman’s family. Jackson was a house guest of the victim at the time.

The victim says Jackson forced her to take a cab to an ATM in Harrisburg.

The victim was able to flee and call the police, who then arrested Jackson.
