Blackmail charges dropped against Baldwin City woman

June 19, 2013

Douglas County prosecutors have dropped a blackmail charge filed last year against a 31-year-old Baldwin City woman.

Janice Boline was arrested on Sept. 26 and accused of blackmailing a convicted Lawrence sex offender. The man — who managed a local business — testified at a preliminary hearing in November but did not return to cooperate with prosecutors during trial preparation this month. In May, a subpoena mailed to the man by prosecutors was returned, marked "return to sender, attempted - no known, unable to forward," according to court records.

The case was dismissed Monday in Douglas County District Court.
