2 Mass. workers get probation in murky pool case
Mass. workers get probation on endangerment charge in case of murky pool where woman drowned
By The Associated Press

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) ' Two former Massachusetts recreation managers have admitted that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict them of reckless endangerment of a child for opening a murky state-run pool where the body of a drowned woman went unnoticed for two days.

Brian Shanahan and Jeff Carter both admitted to sufficient facts in court Tuesday. Their cases were continued without a finding for a year. If they are not convicted of any new crimes during that probationary period, the charges will be dropped.

The body of 36-year-old Marie Joseph was found June 28, two days after she was reported missing while swimming at the Lafayette Park pool in Fall River.

No charges were filed in her death. Shanahan and Carter were charged with reckless endangerment of a child, a misdemeanor, for opening the pool for two days after Joseph's death.
