Late last month Holly Doherty appeared at her arraignment in criminal court in Portland because a Cumberland County grand jury indicated her for six crimes earlier the same month. At this May 22nd arraignment, Doherty was ordered to appear in court again for a “dispositional conference” on August 6, 2014. At that time, Doherty’s attorney, court appointed Dylan Boyd and the State, will try to come to an agreement concerning the six crimes for which she has been indicted.
If no agreement between the two parties can be reached in August, a jury trial has been set for September 8, 2014 at 8:30 am.
Last year, Doherty, 47, opened a second-hand clothing store, Urban Vogue, at 76 Washington Avenue. At the time, she told mhn.com that she was a “hoarder” and this storefront was how she had decided to get rid of all she had hoarded over the years. To the chagrin of business neighbors and others she often displayed racks of clothing across the front of her tiny shop that was for sale. Since that time, mhn.com has learned that she has been accused of dozens of robberies, particularly in the Sunday River ski area. She also said that she owned a clearning service. It is unknown whether or not her Washington Avenue store was actually where Doherty disposed of her ill-begotten loot.
Doherty is a Falmouth resident. She has a young daughter living with her with serious health problems. Please see previous article written on Doherty’s legal problems written on May 15th, 2014 herein.
