Larceny charges against a former Attleboro City Councilor have been dismissed.
The Sun Chronicle reports a judge found there was no provision under state law to prosecute her.
Allard was indicted by a grand jury in 2011 on a charge of larceny from a person over 65, stemming from her relationship with the late former Probate Court Judge Edward F. Casey, who purchased a house in Attleboro and placed it in Allard's name.
The former councilor, a live-in caretaker for the retired jurist, had described herself as a longtime friend of the judge and proclaimed her innocence.
Allard lost her bid for re-election after being indicted.
