Connecticut residents may be interested in the legal troubles of a former New England politician. A former Selectman in Hartford, Vermont was arrested at approximately 1 a.m. on May 9 on Sykes Mountain Ave. in White River Junction. He was scheduled to appear in court this week to face DUI charges.
The charges could be especially dangerous for the former Selectman because he is currently on probation stemming from a January conviction on a federal drug charge. Under the terms of his guilty plea in that conviction, he was to serve one year of probation for having a package of hydrocodone shipped to him in November 2010. He also faces misdemeanor marijuana charges after police found marijuana in his home while executing a search warrant.
