When Barbara Rosita Bailey, 49, of #8 Grazettes Court, Grazettes first appeared before acting Magistrate Ellwood Watts on Monday, she was not required to plead to the indictable offence.

She is accused of concealing daughters Shakira and Tiffany Bailey in a wardrobe in order to impede their apprehension or prosecution, while knowing or believing that they had committed an arrestable offence of aggravated burglary or some other offence.

    Ma Barker alias Ma Bailey raised the bail money without sweat, she and her brood are outlaws. Couple earning or takings and that $10k will be back in her account.

    God will have to forgive them, not I. They are criminals, they committed crimes now everyone want to forgive them like they are innocent. Someone left a comment this morning saying what about her grand kids?, that’s they problem, they should of thought about that before they started stealing. The mother knew what they were doing and hid them from the law, she should be a shame she’s the adult. I hope she have 10K for her bail.

      Tristan John: I should ask you that question lol, And here’s my question to you, Do you know what BAIL means?, here’s the definition: The temporary release of an accused person awaiting trial, sometimes on condition that a sum of money be lodged to guarantee their appearance in court.
