LOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Tarino Lightbourne, a Bahamian ambulance driver, is expected to be formally charged Monday with conspiracy to extort from John Travolta following the death of his son Jett.
A second suspect, Sen. Pleasant Bridgewater was charged with abatement to extort and conspiracy on Thursday.
Bridgewater resigned her senate seat over the weekend and vowed to prove her innocence.
"How these innocent actions can be so misconstrued, so perversely twisted to mean something other than it was, is a mystery," Bridgewater said without providing additional details.
A third man, Tourism Minister Obie Wilchcombe has been questioned about the alleged extortion plot but has not been charged.
