FRAMINGHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (WHDH) – The judge’s daughter at the center of Massachusetts State Police arrest report scandal pleaded guilty to a slew of charges Friday, including drunken driving.
Alli Bibaud, 30, is the centerpiece to a scandal that led to the retirement of the State Police’s superintendent and deputy superintendent. Col. Richard McKeon and Deputy Superintendent Francis Hughes abruptly retired amid accusations that McKeon ordered a trooper to scrub embarrassing information from the police report to protect Bibaud and her father.
Bibaud appeared Friday in Framingham District Court. In court, a prosecutor read from a police report that stemmed from her October DUI arrest but left out embarrassing statements that Bibaud allegedly made about sex and drugs.
“The defendant failed to count her steps out loud, could not walk heel to toe, swayed, stepped off the line and took more than twice as many steps as instructed,” said the prosecutor.
Bibaud crashed her car near exit 2 in Worcester and was found with a heroin kit, according to troopers. Two troopers who responded to the crash have since filed lawsuits, saying they were told to erase details from Bibaud’s arrest report.
Gov. Charlie Baker (R-Mass.) allowed McKeon, who admitted to giving the order, to retire last week. Hughes was also allowed to retire before an investigation could be conducted.
Newly appointed Col. Kerry Gilpin says she will investigate revisions made to the arrest report.
Bibaud’s lawyer said she is 32 days sober and has a heroin problem. She is slated to enter a treatment program in Plymouth, New Hampshire.
Bibaud refused to comment outside of court.
