NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – A woman charged with extorting $6,000 from Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may be about to find out what a grand jury thinks of the case.
Louise Neathway is scheduled to be in a Manhattan court Wednesday to learn whether she’s been indicted. Her lawyer didn’t immediately return a call this week.
“How can (Cashman) deny that we had a relationship when the doorman in my building saw him all the time when he took me out to eat?” she said in a jailhouse interview with the New York Post last month. “We went out together.”
Neathway is a British native. She also goes by Louise Meanwell.
She has a history of arrests on similar charges. A Manhattan judge last month reinstated one of those cases, a 2010 harassment allegation. It had been on track to be dismissed if she avoided rearrest.
What do you think of the charges? Sound off below…
