    A woman charged with extorting thousands of dollars from New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is expected to be released from jail after five months in jail. 

    Louise Neathway was expected to leave from 100 Centre St. Thursday afternoon after raising bond, said bail bondsman Ira Judelson.

    Prosecutors earlier raised questions about how Neathway obtained her bond money. They claimed it might be the result of Neathway shaking down someone else — her mother.

    Neathway's mother, Caroline Meanwell, vehemently denied it.

    Prosecutors say Neathway stalked Cashman and got him to pay her $6,000 by threatening to damage his reputation.

    Neathway, 36, has pleaded not guilty. She says they had a consensual nine-month affair.

    She was held on $300,000 bond.
