The day after Shelton's ex-assistant finance director surrendered to an arrest warrant and was charged with 57 felonies, her lawyer was still mum on details regarding the case, but said that Sharon Scanlon is "prepared to go to court to answer the charges."
William F. Dow III, a New Haven-based criminal lawyer, described Scanlon as "a devoted mother and wife."
"She is very devoted to her family and has a lot of support from her family and throughout her large and wide circle of friends. She is prepared to go to court to answer the charges," he said.
Scanlon, 48, was released on a $100,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Milford Superior Court on Feb 5.
