Continuance expected in Register of Wills Case

August 11th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

WCBC News has learned that a continuance is expected to be granted in the case against Allegany County Register of Wills Rebecca Drew.  Drew, who has been indicted by an Allegany County grand jury on charges of theft scheme, had been looking at an initial court appearance on August 23rd, but the court is expected to move the date at the request of Drew’s lawyer to late September. Drew is represented by Frederick based attorney Margaret Alice Teahan. Indications are that if the continuance is granted It will allow Drew to reach the next step in her retirement from the state.  In return Drew has apparently agreed to resign from the office at that time and pay restitution.  If those steps are taken, it’s expected the state will drop the charges.  Those charges allege that, from July through December 2016, Drew fraudulently used the office credit card and checking account for personal expenses. The alleged theft totaled approximately $4,309. Neither Drew nor her attorney has returned calls from WCBC seeking comment.
