Judge tosses out plea deal for man accused of sexually assaulting children

A judge has thrown out a plea deal for a man accused of sexually assaulting children in the Springfield area.


  1. RE: ......go before a jury if prosecutors and attorneys can not strike a different deal.

    I have lost all faith in Vermont's justice system. There is no reason to negotiate a "deal", unless the State's Attorney is so incompetent he can not successful try this case. That being the issue, as a parent it appears it has come time for the citizens to take out the garbage themselves.

    1. you're right anon 9:54 am; the victims will never forget what was done to them; they should be able to sleep at night secure that he has been taken out

    2. I agree with you Anon 9:54; as I have stated many times in this forum, the VT justice system has lost its way and has totally forgotten who its stakeholders are. Victims and the general community deserve a working justice system (not the incompetent one that has been foisted on us by our supposedly "know-all" politicians. At least, in this case, I applaud the judge for shooting down what was obviously a bad deal. Is the pay in the VT justice system so bad that we can't attract knowledgeable people who at least have some common sense?
