Bay State man convicted of pillaging elderly woman's account
James Hughes, 53, of Dracut, Mass. was found guilty on Thursday of theft and fraudulent use of credit card charges in Rockingham County Superior Court. (JAMES A. KIMBLE)
A jury found James Hughes, 53, guilty on Thursday morning around 9:30 a.m. on charges of felony theft and unauthorized use of a credit card for withdrawing about $9,000 in Salem between March 2009 and January 2010.
McHugh denied several motions by Hughes' public defender, Anthony Naro, to dismiss the charges, or declare a mistrial.
The jury had enough evidence to find that the number of transactions made at Rockingham Park and other gambling establishments could lead them to conclude that Hughes was stealing the money for his own use, McHugh said.
