Charges against 2 are dismissed, withdrawn
All criminal charges were dismissed this week against Casey Albright after the 24-year-old city woman agreed to pay restitution to the two victims in the case as well as all court costs.
District Judge William Solomon dismissed Old Lycoming Township police charges of forgery, theft and receiving stolen property against Albright, of 1012 Baldwin St.
The charges stemmed from Albright allegedly stealing a check from Jude Richardson’s home on Route 973 East when she visited him on Aug. 11, police said, adding she later cashed it for $900.
A former health aide employed by Richardson, Albright allegedly stole $100 from Judith Bergenstock’s purse while in the house, police said. Bergenstock is Richardson’s current home health aide.
In addition to the restitution, Albright paid $185 in court costs.
In another criminal case, this one before District Judge Christian Frey, city police withdrew all charges Tuesday against Angelina Vazquez, 43, of 1919 Apple St., after the alleged victim in the case, her boyfriend, David Braxton, failed to appear for her preliminary hearing.
Vazquez was arrested on charges of aggravated and simple assault for allegedly hitting Braxton multiple times with her car in the 500 block of Stevens Street on July 24. The case was dropped because Braxton failed to show.
The original police complaint had the defendant’s last name spelled Vasquez, which was incorrect.
