What crime did Sophia try to jump bail for on The Golden Girls?

Look, we get the joke here — that sweet old lady, a criminal?

But of course Sophia Petrillo was anything but sweet, and there were plenty of hints that her family was connected in some way to the Sicilian mafia.  Was she capable of something a bit more sinister, or was she just a confused senior citizen who made a mistake?

Perhaps The Golden Girls weren't so golden after all ...

(I've always wanted to say that.)
