Lowell Building Inspector Arraigned On Charges He Stole House

LOWELL (CBS) — A Lowell building inspector has been ordered to stay away from the home he’s accused of stealing from an elderly woman.

David St. Hilaire was arraigned Friday on charges of larceny over $250 from an elderly person and obtaining a signature by false pretense.

Prosecutors say St. Hilaire tricked 86-year-old Erika Magill into signing over her home before she died.

The judge banned St. Hilaire from leasing, selling or mortgaging the home.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Magill had lived in the house for more than 50 years, and authorities say St. Hilaire had tried the property for many years, but she always said no.

If St. Hilaire is found guilty, a judge could order him to give the house to the woman named in Magill’s will.

    If he’s found guilty, he should also have his two legs broken for a start. This is just another case of some lowlife “befriending” an elderly woman with his eyes on the big prize. No conscience, no scruples and no morals. He should be fired but only after, as I said,…………his legs are broken.

    He should be fired immediately arrested and put in jail. He has tarnished the all the people that work for inspectional services in Lowell. What a low life.
