A coordinator at Rhode Island
Blessing Way, a local sober house, was arrested in
North Attleboro after she allegedly drove a
client to a home where the client committed a breaking and entering.
The coordinator, 50-year-old Julie Kelly, says she was fooled by the client,
48-year-old Patricia Lallier, who had just been released from prison days
earlier. Kelly says she had no idea Lallier was committing a crime and that as
part of her job she often drives clients around.
On the other hand, prosecutors say that Lallier admitted to the break-in at 82 Cumberland Ave
in North Attleboro, and says she stole a
credit card that she later used at Stop and Shop. Lallier claims Kelly was
aware that she was breaking into the residence.
Lallier, who has previously been charged with breaking and entering, has
been held on $15,000 bail. Kelly is being held on $10,000 cash bail.
In an unrelated matter Kelly has pending larceny charges in Taunton District
