Laprade case shipped back to Superior Court

July 2, 2014

PAWTUCKET – The state Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a majority ruling overturning a Superior Court decision denying the city’s appeal of a Policemen’s Bill of Rights Hearing decision on its disciplinary charges against Patrolman Nichalas Laprade.

The city’s appeal resulted from a decision by a Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights Act hearing on its list of 18 disciplinary charges brought over Laprade’s February 2011 conviction on charge of disorderly conduct by indecent exposure.

The Supreme Court decision will send the matter back to the Superior Court for reconsideration and potentially back to a rehearing by the Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights hearing committee.
