Tiffany N. Hilliard is being released on parole after serving her minimum jail sentence for the 2017 crime of helping to dispose of the body of a murdered Kittanning man.
Hilliard pleaded guilty last August to felony robbery and abuse of a corpse in the 2017 death of 55-year-old Gregory W. Bosko. She was sentenced to 18 to 36 months in Butler County Prison, but has since served the minimum requirement of the sentence after receiving credit for time served in 2017.
With her parole, she will be admitted to a drug rehabilitation facility where District Attorney Richard Goldinger said during the court hearing that they will “keep tabs” of her, “just so we know her whereabouts when we need her down the road.”
Bosko's family met Judge Timothy Mccune's decision to release Hilliard with dismay. One family member interrupted the court proceeding by shouting, “May I speak, your honor?”
McCune referred the family members to Goldinger, who offered no argument against Hilliard's request to be paroled.
Goldinger took the group of about a dozen family members outside of the courtroom. One family member who refused to identify himself yelled at Goldinger: “I want her in there longer.”
