The criminal case against a former Milton police officer accused of threatening her son’s Black friend with clenched fists in 2020came to a quiet end Monday, when a judge ruled that the white woman’s charges will be dismissed if she does not get arrested again in the next six to 12 months.
Prosecutors alleged that Patricia Lio, 54, threatened her son’s 14-year-oldfriend over his support for the Black Lives Matter movement when the boy was at their home for a sleepover, and also accused her of attacking her husband when he tried to deescalate the confrontation.
