I would like to sue the Saint Albans State Police for defamation of character, where should I start?
I was pulled over for speeding and subsequently charged with possession and trafficking 880 grams of cocaine. The State Trooper saw hair ties on the floor, which apparently are used to package heroin. This gave him a reason to search my Sister-In-Laws car, which she bought at an auction 3 months prior. After a test kit came back positive for cocaine they then turned the two (2) boxes of baking soda that was in the back into 800 grams of cocaine. Not only did I lose my job because, of this, I have not been able to get a job since the three articles were printed and a segment on the Channel 3 news. I've also had to help my daughter cope with problems she now has with her classmates because, of the unwanted publicity and false accusations. At this point it has become harassment because, it's not the first time this happen. My name has been slandered beyond repair and I can't support myself or my daughter without a job. I have more to say and I'll be willing to do so, when the time comes. Thank you for your time, Kristy L.Sweeney

My ex got DUI#6 in Vt. He had plea deal for 18 month DUI court program, but was not accepted into program. Will he go to jail?
My ex got DUI #6 in Chittenden County while on probation for DUI #5 in Windsor County. Chittenden and Windsor gave him a plea deal for violation of DUI #5 and for his sentence for DUI #6. That deal was that my ex could do an 18 month outpatient program called the Windsor County DUI court. Well, my ex violated probation at least one time that I know of, since the deal. There might even have been more instance of probation violation. At any rate, my ex was never accepted into the DUI court program. He had a status conference with judge in Chittenden County this past week. I see he now has a court date in September for a "sentencing hearing". Does this mean that he will be going back to prison? Chittenden orginally wanted him to do 2 to 6 years for DUI #6. Also, this person is a convicted violent felon in Florida with a lengthy history of domestic violence, DUI"s, a firearm charge/conviction and dozens of violation of probation and/or house arrest. Also, why is the sentencing hearing 6 weeks away if he has already admitted guilt? Shouldn't he just have gone directly to prison since he didn't follow the terms of the plea deal?
the likely reason that the sentencing hearing is six weeks down the road is that I am sure a presentence investigation...
Does it make sense for me to hire a lawyer or should I just plea guilty?
I was arrested for a dui in Vermont, this is my first offense. From my understanding, Vermont does not have a work permitted or hardship license. Is it even worth it for me to fight for it. I'm not contesting that I was speeding or over the limit, I just want to be able to drive to work. Like I said this is my first dui and I don't know the process, I'm willing to pay any fines I have to but I don't want to receive jail time. I'm just feeling so overwhelmed.
In response to your question and with my personal inclination, I would highly reccommend that you hire a Criminal...
How long can I expect DUI classes to take? Can I transfer classes from Colorado?
While in Colorado I was convicted of DWAI. I have priors. Colorado has a lifetime lookback so priors from 12 and 15 years ago count for both sentencing and for DUI class length. If I can move back to Vermont how long can I expect DUI classes to be? My BAC was 0.09. Also will I be able to transfer the 6 months of classes I already took in Colorado?
You only need to post a question once!!!
Will someone with his 6th DUI, out on probation for DUI#5, get prison time in Vermont?
My ex just got DUI #6 in Vermont. He just got DUI #5 in VT on June 26, 2015, so about 6 months ago. This is his 3rd DUI in VT. He has one in PA and two in FLorida. In Florida, his license was permanently revoked for DUI#4. He is currently on probation from DUI#5 and has violated 3 times by drinking, driving w/ no license, harassing others, violating curfew, missing visit to probation, etc. He was put on Strict community supervision Nov. 1, 2015 and given curfew, no alcohol, treatment, etc. He also is a convicted felon in FL with domestic violence/aggravated assault w/ a firearm and battery on a person over 65 charges which he did prison time for. He has a history of violating probation and/or house arrest more than a dozen times in FL on top of his VT violations. He also has 2 other domestic violence convictions in FL. Given his extensive criminal history, his inability to stay sober or follow conditions of release, do you feel he will be charged as a habitual offender and be given real prison time? He is currently in VT prison waiting until the end of Feb. for his VOPhearing. He has a $50,000 bond. His probation officer plans to use EVERYTHING against him.
Possibly. Your ex needs to speak with his public defender.
Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
