Woman Sentenced to 30 Days for Outburst at Crider Trial
A Quincy woman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for disrupting murder-trial testimony.
Twenty-five-year-old Donna K. Bailey was held in direct contempt of court by Judge Robert Adrian and could have faced a sentence of 180 days and $500.
The Herald-Whig reports that Bailey is the aunt of Steson Crider. Crider is on trial for the shooting death of a 12-year-old boy last spring.
Bailey had finished testifying for the defense and was watching her sister, 20-year-old Precious Bailey, on the stand. As Precious Bailey testified under cross-examination about an ex-boyfriend, Donna Bailey screamed that her sister was scared of the boyfriend and suggested he was violent.
Donna Bailey was led out of court and sentenced at the end of testimony.
