UPDATE: Barbara Joly is free on bond after appearing in a Franklin, OH courtroom Tuesday afternoon on robbery charges.  A judge set another hearing next week but Joly's attorney said they will probably request the case go directly to a Grand Jury.

Joly's attorney also said he expects his client to face other charges in the near future.

Joly did not enter a plea at Tuesday's hearing.  She did not speak to reporters when leaving the courtroom.
