In January 2020, the Southborough Police announced that a Framingham resident was arrested for robbing a senior at his Southborough home. Yesterday, Metrowest Daily News reported that the accused was convicted.
Timothy Caulfield was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to unarmed robbery plus assault and battery, each on a person 60 or older:
A former Cambridge police officer was placed on probation for 4 years Monday after admitting to robbing an 86-year-old Southborough man he followed home from an ATM machine. . .
Authorities have said Caulfield, on Jan. 2, followed an 86-year-old man home from a Framingham ATM and accosted him in his Southborough driveway.
They said Caulfield robbed the man by taking his wallet and cellphone from his pocket. He also threatened the man, police said, but did not hurt him. . .
During his change-of-plea hearing Monday, Caulfield indicated he is receiving mental health and substance abuse treatment.
Judge James Gavin Reardon Jr. Monday agreed that 4 years of probation was an appropriate sentence. He noted Caulfield has no prior record, has expressed remorse and embarrassment for the crime, is currently receiving treatment and is participating in a work therapy program at the Bedford VA.
