Despite Larry Mendte's Friday admission that he and Alycia Lane had a "flirtatious, unprofessional and improper" relationship, there is a very good reason for Lane to be smiling today.
The former CBS 3 anchor is now a free woman in New York.
Today is the expiration of the six-month period-of-dismissal of her charges of assaulting a female police officer in New York last December. On Feb. 25 in a New York courtroom, the Manhattan district attorney and Lane's criminal lawyer David Smith agreed to an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal. The court administrator's office confirmed last week that as of today, Lane's New York criminal record should now be clean. While her criminal matter is wrapped up, Lane is still busy in civil court as her wrongful-termination suit against CBS 3, which fired her in January, is ongoing.
