Manchester Crimewatch: Woman accused of stalking after asking for ride to court
MANCHESTER - Susan Lombard, 45, who pleaded innocent to a simple assault charge Monday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division, pleaded innocent Tuesday to a stalking charge that alleges she had contact with the assault victim.
Because that is a violation of her bail conditions, the police prosecutor filed a motion to revoke Lombard's bail and she will be held until a bail revocation hearing today.
Lombard is accused of calling the alleged victim, with whom she shared an apartment at 1475 Bodwell Road, for a ride to court Monday and was arrested at court after her arraignment on the assault charge.
A police prosecutor said Lombard has a deferred sentence on a conviction for assaulting the same man in Derry last year.
In court Tuesday, Lombard told Judge Gregory Michael that she could live with her daughter if released on bail.
Trial on both charges was set for Feb. 28, 2013.
Winter odd/even parking is in effect
Neville Padmore, 56, of 166 Amory St., pleaded no contest Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to an odd/even parking violation of the winter street parking rules that went into effect Dec. 1.
Police prosecutor Lt. Ron Mello said because Padmore had paid for some other outstanding tickets, he recommended suspending the standard $25 fine on the odd/even violation for one year of good behavior.
An obviously irritated Padmore asked Judge Gregory Michael what the parking rules are, but Michael said Padmore needed to get that information from the city.
According to the city website, the odd or even day starts at midnight. If you park your car before midnight, park on the side of the street that corresponds to the following day, odd or even. And, of course, when a snow emergency is declared, there is no parking on either side of the street.
Christmas break on theft charge
Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Judge Gregory Michael told a Derry woman that only the Christmas spirit was preventing him from sentencing her to a few days in jail on a theft plea.
Elizabeth Freitas, 41, of 3 Cemetery Road, pleaded guilty to a theft by unauthorized taking charge for walking out of JCPenney with merchandise without paying for it Nov. 26.
After a police prosecutor said Freitas was convicted of shoplifting July 17, 2008, Michael said it is his practice to sentence people to a few days in jail for a second theft, but he said being close to Christmas saved her.
Michael asked Freitas how she would feel if she went home and found someone had stolen her belongings.
"Stealing is stealing," he said. "Keep your hands off other people's property."
Michael modified the prosecutor's proposed $200 fine plus penalty assessment, payable immediately, and six-month sentence in the House of Corrections, suspended for two years of good behavior.
Michael made it a $1,000 fine with $800 suspended for three years of good behavior, so she still had to pay $200 plus a $48 penalty assessment immediately. He also changed the six-month suspended sentence to one year in the House of Corrections and suspended that for three years of good behavior.
