A kidnapping charge has been dropped in Pennsylvania against a Taylorville resident. Billie Baker accepted a plea deal this week that drops the kidnapping charge, and sees him plead guilty to a lesser charge of concealment of the whereabouts of a child.

 

Baker was arrested by authorities during a traffic stop in Pennsylvania in April, concluding a two months search for 17 year old Rachel Barrish. Barrish was found as a passenger in Baker’s vehicle, with Baker originally being arrested on an outstanding warrant.

 

Baker will face sentencing in March and could face up to seven years in prison.
