Charges against booted Worthington juror dropped
FALMOUTH - Accessory charges against booted Worthington trial juror Rachel Huffman have been dropped. 7News reports District Attorney Michael O'Keefe says there is not enough evidence to warrant continuing with the case. Huffman had been charged as an accessory after the fact in a shooting in Falmouth.

She still faces larceny under $250 and possession of stolen RMV document charges. Her boyfriend Kyle Hicks remains locked up in connection with the attempted murder. She was tossed off the Worthington trial jury after phone calls with Hicks showed she had been discussing the case and watching news reports. Posted on 12/04 at 11:15 PM.
