Arruda arrest stuns judge

October 14, 2011

WOONSOCKET – Municipal Court Judge Lloyd Gariepy worked alongside court aide Rachel T. Arruda for 24 years but he says he had no idea she was embezzling large sums of money generated from traffic fines, as state police allege.
Gariepy said he had nothing to do with processing fines – that was Arruda’s job – and she gave every outward indication of doing it an honest fashion.
“The judge has no management control, he has judicial control,” said Gariepy. “There was no outward indication that she was betraying the public trust that was placed in her for the handling of money.”
