Elisa and Adam Baker Updates


Elisa got off light!

Despite having been charged with conspiracy to distribute 12,000 Oxycodone, 10,000 Hydrocodone and 29,000 Alprazolam, between May 2006 and October 2010, in a plea deal reached with the US Attorney’s office, 6 of the 7 charges were dropped.

A sentencing date has not yet been set, but under the plea agreement, she faces a maximum of 20 years and a $1 million fine.

Baker will have to complete her current 14-18 year state sentence before the federal sentence begins.

Adam got a surprise – he’s not getting on that plane back to Australia next week! 

Having pled guilty to one felony count of obtaining property by false pretense, Baker was ordered to pay $349 in restitution and received a suspended sentence of 45 days in jail.

After that mess was resolved, Baker headed to the Caldwell County District Court to sort out several misdemeanor charges.  To his surprise, he was hit with a 30-day sentence for assault with a deadly weapon.  Baker’s attorney has filed a notice of appeal.

Baker still has pending charges of failure to return rental property and six counts of writing bad checks.

    Poor Adam. Gets away with no charges in Zarah’s death, how could he NOT know? I suppose 30 days in jail is even too much for him. I’ll be glad when he gets shipped back to Australia (ritanita metaphorically wipes her hands of him).

    Now, Elisa and her plea bargains! It’s called getting away with murder, so to speak. However I’m pleased no end that she will serve her terms consecutively. She’ll be pretty old if she lasts in prison.

    I’m looking forward to Joran’s trial that starts today. I hope the judges don’t buy his bogus plea.

    You’re absolutely correct about both Adam and Elisa!
