The Irish nanny, in Boston, accused of the assault of one-year-old Rehma Sabir causing her death, has failed to raise bail of $500,000 designated by the court. Aisling McCarthy Brady will now remain in prison until February 22 when her case is resumed.

A representative of the Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Framingham, where McCarthy Brady is being held, told the Irish Daily Star newspaper that the 34-year-old Cavan woman had failed to raise bail.

“Our records show she hasn’t made bail — and if she wants to secure release directly from prison, bail in the full cash amount is required,” the spokesperson said, on Tuesday.

“Alternatively, the inmate may use a bail bondsman but that can only be done through the courts.”

If McCarthy Brady had posted bail she could not have contact with the Sabir family or any children under the age of ten. She also cannot engage in employment or volunteer to work with children.

McCarthy Brady has worked as a child carer for over a decade.

Having posted bail she would have surrendered her passport, checked in with a probation officer and remained under GPS monitoring.

In court last week, McCarthy Brady pleaded not guilty to the charges of abuse against her. Her defence attorney, Melinda Thomson, has said that she believes her client is innocent and sees huge holes in the prosecution’s case.

The DA have said that McCarthy Brady could be charged with baby Sabir’s murder once the autopsy results are returned. This could take weeks.
