As he prepares for his upcoming trial, Waltham Police Chief Thomas LaCroix gained a little more freedom during his supervised release, according to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office.
LaCroix is facing serious charges for allegedly attacking his wife and her friend in June of 2012. Jury selection for his upcoming trial is set to start on Feb. 13, according to Middlesex County District Attorney Spokesman MaryBeth Long.
During a Jan. 4, 2013 hearing at Concord District Court, a judge eased one condition of LaCroix’s supervised release – LaCroix’s curfew now begins at 11 p.m. instead of 10 p.m., Long told Waltham Patch. During a September hearing, a judge lifted his house arrest for 7 a.m. – 10 p.m. He is still under house arrest between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. He is also required to stay away from the alleged victims.
LaCroix remains on paid leave from his job. Acting Police Chief Keith MacPherson is currently running the police department.
