Pleasant Bridgewater -- the disgraced Bahamas senator and former attorney who is charged with plotting to extort money from John Travolta -- was granted bail today.

She is alleged to have requested $25 million to suppress a document pertaining to the treatment given Jett Travolta. The document would have cleared emergency responders from liability, though the issues it dealt with do not appear to have been relevant in this matter. Investigators aren't sure why Ms. Bridgewater or her accomplice -- paramedic Tarino Lightbourne -- felt the document was worth anything to the star.

Bail was set at $50,000 for Bridgewater. She resigned her Senate seat last week following her arrest and is due back in court on February 11.

Lightbourne, who had tried to revive Jett after on January 2, has pleaded not guilty to attempted extort and conspiracy to extort.
