Charges against former Attleboro City Councilor Kim Allard have been dropped, the Sun Chronicle is reporting.

According to the report, a judge determined Wednesday that there is no provision under state law to prosecute her and it would be difficult to proceed with a charge of larceny under false pretenses.

Allard was indicted in 2011 after she was accused of taking advantage of former Probate Court Judge, the late Edward F. Casey. The prosecution said Casey suffered from dementia and memory loss, and purchased an Attleboro home for $328,000, then deeded it to Allard for $1. She pleaded not guilty in 2011, just days before Election Day. She lost her re-election bid.

Her trial was originally scheduled for this past March, but was pushed back to this week in Fall River.

"American Taliban" ? Really, Gretchen. Such doesn't exist and you know it! This dumb talk only flies in Cambridge, Madison, or Berkley. If I didn't know better, I'd suspect that your smoking the stuff that some want to legalize.

The stuff some people want to legalize? I think maybe you need to wake up and smell whatever. 58% of Americans want to end the war on marijuana. When other states see how much tax revenue Colorado & Washington are raking in, voters will be in favor of it regardless if they smoke or not. Money will also be saved by not jailing people for marijuana prohibition.

paul: And then we have "statesmen" like Markey writing letters scolding NBC because of the use of e-cigarettes during the Golden Globes. One must wonder if the political elites are worried about the effect this new technology will have on big tobacco.
