Attleboro Councilor Indicted On Larceny Charges

An Attleboro city councilor has been indicted on charges of stealing from a retired judge she once served as a caretaker.

Kim Allard was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on two counts of larceny from an elder.
Authorities allege that the 41-year-old Allard convinced retired Probate Court Judge Edward F. Casey to buy a house and hand over the deed to her for $1.

Bill Bowles, a former city councilor and state representative who was conservator for Casey's estate, tells The Sun Chronicle that as a result of the transaction, Casey now lives in assisted living facility with limited financial options.

Allard said she looks forward to proving her innocence.

A civil lawsuit in the case was resolved in November with Allard required to make payments on the house.
