Hickey's aunt bailed on riot charges

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 27 February 2004


The aunt of Thomas Hickey, whose death sparked a riot in Sydney's Redfern area two weeks ago, has been released on bail.

Marilyn Cargill was arrested shortly after the riot and charged with throwing a missile, violent disorder, riot and affray.

She had been held in custody since her arrest, preventing her from attending her nephew's funeral on Tuesday.

But in Redfern Local Court today she was granted bail.

She will reappear in court in April.
