Attleboro City Councilor Will Plead Not Guilty and Stay in Race
Attleboro City Councilor Kim Allard said she will continue her race for an at-large council seat.
Attleboro City Councilor Kim Allard, who is seeking reelection in November for another term as city councilor at-large, said she is moving forward with her campaign for reelection despite being indicted in Fall River Superior Court Friday on two counts of grand larceny.
"I haven't seen the charges yet," Allard said Tuesday afternoon. "But I will be pleading not guilty."
Asked if she has plans to withdraw from the city election, Allard said: "No, I am not."
Allard said she could not comment any further on the indictment until she has seen the charges and has spoken to her attorney.
Allard's arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 1, just days before the election.
