NEW YORK (AP) — A woman charged with extorting $6,000 from New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may be about to find out what a grand jury thinks of the case.
Louise Neathway (NEETH’-way) 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.
Neathway is being held on $300,000 bond on grand larceny, stalking and other charges. She denies allegations of threatening to damage Cashman’s reputation to get him to pay her.
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.
