After Guilty Verdicts, Mayor Cuts Lacroix Off But Not Out

Waltham Newswatch, June 25, 2013
Thursday in Concord District Court, a jury of six found Waltham police chief Thomas Lacroix guilty of one misdemeanor assault charge and guilty of the misdemeanor portion of another assault charge. He was found not guilty of five other charges.

Mayor McCarthy responded quickly, saying she was cutting the chief’s pay, but keeping him on administrative leave.

In total Lacroix faced seven charges in a domestic violence case from last June involving his wife Andrea and Shannon Policano, a friend of hers. The chief will be sentenced on July 10.
