Elder-abuse Charges Against Man's Wife Dropped (NC. USA)


Elder-abuse charges against man's wife dropped
Ruling does not equal vindication, prosecutor says
Feb. 21, 2011
WILMINGTON 
Prosecutors have dropped the criminal convictions against an 81-year-old woman for abusing her ailing, 83-year-old husband in 2009, citing errors in the prosecution of the case and "changed circumstances."
Shirley M. Wilson is now claiming vindication, saying not only have her convictions for elder abuse and other charges been dismissed, the charges themselves have been dropped, meaning there will be no retrial and no criminal record.
Deputy Attorney General Paul R. Wallace, however, said the result "should not be viewed as vindication."
