Trials Joined, Baker Could Be Jailed

There is another chapter of the Baker, Bowman saga unfolding this week. The CDT is reporting that the trials have been joined for the two wayward ex-players. So they will both be tried in the same proceeding. This gives the prosecution a number of advantages, particularly with regards to statements either of the players may have made.

Also, Baker will appear in court again on Friday where the judge will hear arguments to reject his bail. As you may remember, Baker was out on bail for his involvement in the PSU player brawl from the Meridian apartments last April. As he is now facing more felony charges he allegedly committed while on felony release, his likelihood of remaining a free man seems slim.

Nothing beats an update on criminal proceedings in Happy Valley. Sigh.
