From (AP) Mobile, AL: A federal judge ordered a 90-year-old woman, (Lucious 'Big Mama' Westry) and her 60-year-old son (Calvin Westry) jailed without bail on drug charges, saying they might represent a danger to the community if freed....Defense attorneys asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Bert Milling Jr. to let them stay with Calvin Westry's daughter until the case is resolved, but he refused" based on evidence that Lucious, despite her age, is the "matriarch of a crime family that engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to sell street drugs, including crack, and prescription medications, such as OxyContin, from their home."
