Former Franklin County prosecutor sentenced Wednesday
BANGOR, Maine (WMTW) - A former Franklin County assistant district attorney was sentenced Wednesday for her role in a $13 million marijuana operation in western Maine.
36-year-old Kayla Alves will serve two years of probation and was assessed a $2,000 fine.
She pleaded guilty in March to tampering with documents.
According to court records, in July 2020, while Alves was employed as an assistant district attorney in the Farmington office of the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office, she deleted text message conversations between her and former Franklin County Deputy Sheriff Bradley Scovil.
The deleted messages showed that Scovil had repeatedly asked Alves to use her position to find out if he was under investigation by law enforcement.
Alves was among 13 people charged in connection with the marijuana and alleged money laundering operation, including law enforcement officers and elected officials.
