Woman charged with running down officer allowed to leave state, Mass.

April 5, 2001

(DEDHAM, Mass.) – A judge has allowed a woman charged with the vehicular homicide of a police officer to live in Florida while she awaits trial.

Rita Garland must check in by telephone with her probation officer in Massachusetts but does not have to make her next court appearance in person.

Police Officer Daniel McCarthy was fatally injured last September as he directed traffic around a construction site in Medfield. The Boston Herald reports that Garland obtained a Florida driver’s license shortly after and before her Massachusetts license was suspended. When she was charged, she was released on her own recognizance and not restricted to the state of Massachusetts.
