Candie Hailey back in court on criminal mischief charges

A Bronx woman who spent three years on Rikers Island after being accused of attempted murder will face a judge today on unrelated charges.



Candie Hailey has been charged with criminal mischief stemming from confrontations she allegedly had with officers while behind bars. 



Hailey was released last year after being found not guilty.



Advocates of Hailey say the charges are unfair and are calling for them to be dropped.
