Tammi Smith is out of jail this morning. She was picked up by her husband Jack. Tammi has reportedly said, “It doesn’t mean those charges are gonna stick. It doesn’t mean those charges are true. But nevertheless, they were able to do that ’cause they’re the guys with the guns,”
But yesterday, as Tammi Smith was being brought to jail, she allegedly told a reporter, Corey Rangel, “We all knew this was going to happen. I am innocent and God is with me.”

According to reports, Smith is being charged with the following:
1. Conspiracy to Commit Custodial Interference (A class four felony)
2. Custodial Interference (A Class four felony)
3. Forgery (A Class four felony)
Authorities are saying that her husband, Jack Smith, is no longer considered a person of interest in the case of the little boy, now being referred to by many as “baby Gabriel.” Jack Smith says he is outraged about the charges against his wife Tammi. He says that he and his wife have been fully cooperating with police.
“I feel betrayed because we have done everything,” said Jack Smith. “I feel so bullied right now. I feel like there’s a bully in the yard that’s doing everything they can to try to provoke me into something.”
Nine-month-old Gabriel was last seen on the day after Christmas with his mother, Elizabeth Johnson, who remains in jail on several charges. Elizabeth has reportedly told the father of baby Gabriel that she killed their child.
Although the arrest of Smith brought new hope that Gabriel would be found alive, police still say, “It is a very real possibility that Elizabeth killed Gabriel.”
