A Citibank vice president has put up $300,000 to get her daughter out on bail after being held in jail for the last five months on extortion charges, but prosecutors want to make sure she’s not being extorted, Sarah Wallace at ABC Eyewitness News reports.Citi VP Caroline Meanwell’s 37-year-old daughter Louis Neathway has been accused of allegedly stalking Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman after a nine-month extramarital affair allegedly went bad and extorting thousands of dollars from him, according to the report.

Neathway, who has been in Rikers since February, has pleaded not guilty to the charges, the report said.  

The District Attorney’s office is holding up the bail package put up by the banker because they want to make sure that Neathway is not extorting her own mother.  

Meanwell told ABC Eyewitness News that she’s putting up the bail because she’s her daughter and she loves her and that she would “lay down my life for her.”  

They’ll be back in criminal court today.
