Ex-Plaistow finance director indicted on theft charge
Janet Gallant, 52, of Koper Lane in Pelham, is facing a felony theft by unauthorized taking charge for allegedly siphoning the money from town coffers between May 10, 2012, and Nov. 1, 2012, according to an indictment.
Gallant has pleaded not guilty, and remains free on bail.
She is scheduled to appear later this month for arraignment in superior court.
Gallant was hired in Plaistow in April 2011, after having worked in Pelham as finance director between 2005 and 2010, according to town officials.
Plaistow town officials have said previously that they had identified some concerns about Gallant’s work at the end of 2012.
The theft charge is a Class A felony, punishable by up to 7½ to 15 years in state prison. Town officials say they should be covered by insurance for the theft, but hope to recover as much money as possible.
