Haverford official's theft charges are dropped again

Posted: August 01, 2007

A judge has dropped theft charges against a Haverford Township commissioner who was accused of using township money to pay more than $8,500 of his personal phone and Internet bills.

Judge Harold A. Thomson of Pike County dismissed the charges against Fred C. Moran "without prejudice," but left open a door for the state to refile "in connection with the charge of conspiracy." The theft charges had already been refiled once by the Attorney General's Office after a Delaware County judge dismissed them in early July.

In April, Moran was charged with bribery, obstruction of justice, and theft after he was accused of trying to extort a half-million dollars from a developer in exchange for zoning approval to the Haverford State Hospital property. Those charges are still pending.- Mari A. Schaefer
