After two hours of testimony at a preliminary hearing on March 28, 2011, a Magisterial District Judge dismissed allegations of criminal mischief against an Albion, Pennsylvania woman. The charges stemmed from a claim that a man was assaulted and his car damaged following a disturbance at a retirement party in November 2010. The man claimed that the Albion woman kicked his car repeatedly, resulting in damage to the passenger's side of his car. Erie criminal attorney Tim George, successfully argued that the evidence presented at the hearing was not sufficient to hold the case for trial. The Court agreed and dismissed the charges. A separate allegation of harassment, a summary offense, will be decided at a summary hearing before the same Magisterial District Judge later this year.
