Dirtbag Conviction

OCTOBER 18--The biggest asshole in Pennsylvania has pleaded guilty to sucker punching a man with cerebral palsy, a revolting attack that was recorded by a 7-Eleven surveillance camera.

Barry Baker, a 29-year-old dirtbag from West Chester, last month copped to assault and disorderly conduct charges in connection with his unprovoked 2:30 AM attack on the victim.  

Baker--a convicted felon whose rap sheet already includes convictions for theft, forgery, conspiracy, and receiving stolen property--was recorded on May 10 punching the 22-year-old victim in the face after mocking the way the man walked.

Seen above, video of the assault allowed police to quickly identify and arrest the ex-con.

Baker was initially released on $25,000 bond, but his rearrest was subsequently ordered by a judge who found that Baker had violated probation terms related to a prior theft conviction.

But instead of surrendering to authorities, Baker went on the lam (allegedly with the aid of his fiancée). Baker was eventually apprehended by United States Marshals Service deputies, who found him hiding in a hotel room’s bathroom.

An examination of Baker’s phone revealed online searches for “how do cops ping a cell phone” and “how to change my personal name.” Baker, investigators noted, also researched Greyhound and Amtrak schedules and “various locations in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.”

Baker was charged with flight to avoid apprehension, a misdemeanor to which he also pleaded guilty last month.

Baker is scheduled to be sentenced November 29 in Common Pleas Court in West Chester, a Philadelphia suburb. He faces a maximum of two years in prison apiece on the misdemeanor assault and flight counts. The disorderly conduct charge carries a maximum of 90 days in custody. (2 pages)
