GIST:  "One Chelsea man who was arrested less than a month after being released allegedly said, "I just got out on Annie Dookhan and I ain’t going back to jail" as police escorted him out of a McDonalds. Pasquarello, speaking to the Somerville Board of Aldermen Tuesday, said Somerville police have formed a partnership with the Middlesex County District Attorney's office to monitor and potentially help the former inmates residing in Somerville. "When these people are out on the streets, we want to have encounters with them … and offer services," Pasquarello said."
