The BRA yesterday approved a $56.8-million redo of the the Old Colony housing project that will replace the current post-war project with a new six-story building and a series of townhouses.
The Massachusetts Court of Appeals today threw out the criminal-trespassing conviction of a man who'd invited into a Boston Housing Authority building by a tenant.
Gregory Nelson, who'd been barred from the Old Colony project in South Boston following an arrest for possession of a dangerous weapon, was arrested again on April 25, 2007, when two housing cops spotted him in a hallway - right next to a large "No Trespassing" sign.
Testimony showed he was there at the invitation of a friend who lived in the building after a night out. And the court noted that the BHA's own leases and police rules state that while a barred person cannot just enter a BHA building and wander around, "a resident does have the right to invite any individual not barred by a restraining order as a guest."
