Baby mamas defend gangster in rape trial

`Two women who have children fathered by rape defendant Brett “Prince” Barden testified yesterday that the purported city gang member was busy babysitting his troubled son at the time he is accused by police of having sex with a 12-year-old Lawrence girl.

In the final day of testimony, Gladys Santiago, of Camden, testified that at the time in question, she had forced the defendant to watch their 8-year-old son — who was suspended from school in June 2004 — while she was at work. [..]

According to testimony, Barden, 35, allegedly slept with his daughter’s preteen friend that spring to “educate her about sex.”‘

Strange headline. [shrug]
