Tough day for the Baker family

You might say yesterday was not a good day for the Baker family of Chester County.

You remember Barry Baker Jr. He's the man now charged with sucker-punching a man who suffers from cerebral palsy outside a West Chester convenience store.

First Baker mocked the way the man walked as he entered the store. Baker waited outside and when the man exited, he out of nowhere just hauls off and cold-cocks the guy square in the jaw.

It took a few days but Baker was eventually corralled after the video of the incident went national.

Yesterday, Baker's father was in the news.

Barry Baker Sr. was among 46 people charged in a heroin-opioid sting operation run by the Chester County D.A.'s office.

Chester County D.A. Tom Hogan could not resist pointing out the connection during his press conference announce the arrests as part of "Operation Wildfire."

"“It’s a heck of a family,” the D.A. quipped.

But that was not the last item involving the Bakers to hit the news yesterday.

Barry Baker Jr.'s fiancee was charged with hindering his apprehension in the time he was on the lam.

She now faces charges of helping him avoid capture during his two-week run from law enforcement authorities.

Denise Ranae Schmidt is charged with hindering apprehension or prosecution, a second-degree misdemeanor, for actions she took on behalf of her fiancé, Barry Robert Baker Jr. while he was wanted in Chester County on two bench warrants.
