California IN BRIEF : SAN JOSE : Charges Dropped in Antiques Case

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Saying he couldn’t “in good conscience” find any evidence to support allegations in a stolen antiques case against a former Santa Clara County prosecutor, a judge dismissed two felony charges and reduced a third charge to a misdemeanor. Municipal Judge Edward J. Nelson said he found no proof that Alan Nudelman knowingly bought stolen antiques from confessed burglar Jack Lee Marquardt, or that Nudelman burglarized an abandoned Victorian house with Marquardt, who admitted lying on the stand. Nudelman, 46, resigned from his job after his arrest last year.
