BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts' attorney general says no criminal charges will be filed related to the removal of embarrassing details from the police report about the arrest of a judge's daughter.

Democratic Attorney General Maura Healey said in a statement Friday that her office conducted an extensive investigation into the matter and found that the evidence doesn't support criminal charges.

Former Massachusetts State Police Col. Richard McKeon retired in November after a federal lawsuit accused him of ordering a trooper to scrub embarrassing information from the police report for Alli Bibaud.

Healey says the revisions to the police report raise concerns about possible civil ethics violations, but says her office found there was no "criminal intent to prejudice Bibaud's prosecution."

Healey says she's referring the matter to the State Ethics Commission.
