ARBUCKLE PLEADS GUILTY! JAILED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE!

TIM ARBUCKLE HAS PLEADED GUILTY TO ASSAULT CHARGES FOR KICKING VINNIE WHILE HE WAS DYING! HE SHOULD BE FACING THE SAME CHARGES AS BOLASKI. AT THE VERY LEAST HE SHOULD BE FACING ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON. BUT THANKS TO ROBERT SAND ARBUCKLE NOW ONLY FACES A SMALL SENTENCE COMPARED TO WHAT HE DESERVES. SENTENCING WAS SET FOR JULY 1, 2011 AT 1PM. BUT SENTENCING WAS DELAYED. TRUE TO FORM ARBUCKLE WAS ARRESTED AGAIN.

ON JUNE 6 ARBUCKLE WAS ARRESTED FOR HIS 4TH DUI IN VERMONT! THIS IS A FELONY WHICH CARRIES A SENTENCE OF 10 YEARS IN PRISON. HE WAS CHARGED IN WHITE RIVER JUNCTION COURT FOR FELONY DUI, PAROLE VIOLATION AND 2 COUNTS OF LYING TO ARRESTING OFFICERS. ALL TOLD HE IS FACING CLOSE TO 15 YEARS IN PRISON. SO WHAT DOES THE VERMONT COURTS DO TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS FROM THIS VIOLENT, REPEAT OFFENDER? THIS MAN THAT HAS BROKEN THE LAW TIME AND TIME AGAIN. VIOLATED HIS PAROLE MULTIPLE TIMES. HAS PLEADED GUILTY TO ASSAULT AND WAS AWAITING SENTENCING, DID 6 MONTHS IN PRISON IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND WAS PART OF A MOB THAT MURDERED A MAN. WHAT DOES THE JUSTICE SYSTEM OF VERMONT DO TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE FROM HIM, TO MAKE SURE HE CAN'T DO ANY MORE HARM TO ANYONE ELSE... THEY RELEASE HIM!! WITHOUT BAIL!

BUT WITH RESTRICTIONS! HE HAS A CURFEW FOR THE HOURS OF 9PM AND 4AM! SO FOR 7 HOURS THE CITIZENS ARE SAFE FROM HIM. WHILE EVERYONE IS SLEEPING, SAFE IN THEIR HOMES. BUT COME MORNING, WHEN THEY ARE OUT AND ABOUT, WORKING, SHOPPING, SOCIALIZING, THEY ARE AT THE MERCY OF THIS VIOLENT REPEAT OFFENDER. THANKS TO THE VERMONT COURT SYSTEM! PLUS HOW DO THEY ENSURE THAT HE IS ABIDING BY THE CURFEW? HE HAS VIOLATED EVERY ORDER ALREADY WHAT MAKES THEM THINK HE WOULD ABIDE BY THIS ORDER? WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? WHAT DOES A PERSON HAVE TO DO TO GET LOCKED UP IN VERMONT? NOT ASSAULT, NOR DRIVING DRUNK, NOR EVEN MURDER! THE WAY THEY CODDLE CRIMINALS IS ABSOLUTELY SHAMEFUL!

ARBUCKLE IS ONE OF THE WORST REPEAT OFFENDERS IN THE SYSTEM. BECAUSE HE IS ALLOWED TO. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM FAILS TO DO THEIR JOB. WHEN CRIMINALS ARE PROTECTED MORE THAN THE PEOPLE THEY REPEAT THEIR CRIMES BECAUSE THEY CAN. THEY REOFFEND BECAUSE THEY CAN. THEY ROB, THEY STEAL, THEY PERJURE, THEY KILL BECAUSE THEY CAN.

BUT THANK GOD ONE STATE HAS THE COMMON SENSE TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT. NEW HAMPSHIRE, WHERE ARBUCKLE SERVED 6 MONTHS AND WAS ON PAROLE FOR 7 YEARS, FOUND OUT ABOUT ARBUCKLE AND ON JUNE 23RD HAD HIM ARRESTED AND JAILED. ARBUCKLE IS NOW SITTING IN A NEW HAMPSHIRE JAIL ON $10,000.00 BAIL. THEY ARE DOING WHAT VERMONT HAS FAILED TO DO. PROTECT THEIR CITIZENS FROM A VIOLENT PERSON. IN DOING SO THEY ARE ALSO PROTECTING THE CITIZENS OF VERMONT. VERMONT SHOULD BE ASHAMED! CONSIDERING ALL THE CHARGES VERMONT HAS ON HIM.

WE WENT IN TO THE WHITE RIVER JUNCTION COURT ON JULY 1ST FOR THE SENTENCING OF TIM ARBUCKLE. IT WAS EMPTY EXCEPT FOR ME, RONNIE, JOHN AND KELLY OUR ADVOCATE. THERE WAS ONE OTHER PERSON APPEARING IN THE COURT ON A CHARGE UNRELATED TO US. IT WAS PRETTY WEIRD BEING IN THERE WHILE IT WAS SO EMPTY. WE WERE VERY DISAPPOINTED TO LEARN WE WOULD HAVE TO WAIT FOR THIS CHAPTER IN OUR LIVES TO BE CLOSED CONCERNING ARBUCKLE. ARBUCKLE’S LAWYER CAME IN TO THE ROOM. JOHN TRIED TO EXCHANGE PLEASANTRIES WITH HER BUT SHE WAS HEARING NONE OF IT AND WALKED RIGHT BY HIM. IT DIDN’T PHASE HIM AT ALL.

THE JUDGE ENTERED THE COURTROOM. SHE HAD BECOME FAMILIAR TO ME OVER THE COURSE OF THE TRIAL AND I HAD GROWN ACCUSTOMED TO SEEING HER. BUT NOW IT SEEMED DIFFERENT SOMEHOW. I GUESS THE EMPTINESS OF THE COURTROOM, THE SOLITUDE, BROUGHT A DIFFERENT ATMOSPHERE.  IT GAVE ME A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON THINGS. WE WERE THE SECOND AND LAST CASE CALLED. JOHN EXPLAINED TO THE COURT THAT ARBUCKLE WAS JAILED IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND THEY WILL NOT RELEASE HIM TO COME TO COURT IN VERMONT UNLESS THERE IS AN ARREST WARRANT PUT ON ARBUCKLE AND BAIL IS SET. NEW HAMPSHIRE DID NOT TRUST VERMONT TO HOLD HIM AND RETURN HIM TO NEW HAMPSHIRE. SO THEY REFUSED TO RELEASE ARBUCKLE TO ATTEND THE SENTENCING. I’M GLAD THAT SOMEONE BELIEVES IN IMPLEMENTING JUSTICE. SOMETHING SORELY LACKING IN VERMONT.

ARBUCKLES LAWYER ASKED TO APPROACH THE BENCH. JOHN LOOKED AROUND AT THE EMPTY COURTROOM AND OBJECTED. “THERE’S NO ONE HERE,” HE SAID. THE JUDGE AGREED BUT ALLOWED THEM TO APPROACH. THERE WAS SOME CONVERSATION THEN JOHN SAID TO THE JUDGE HE WAS GOING BACK TO HIS SEAT. THE JUDGE AGREED AND SENT THEM BOTH BACK. JOHN EXPLAINED THE CIRCUMSTANCES LEADING UP TO THIS.

HE SAID ARBUCKLE WAS PICKED UP FOR OUI AGAIN. HE STATED THIS WAS HIS 4TH OFFENSE AND NOW A FELONY WITH A 10 YEAR PRISON SENTENCE. HE EXPLAINED ARBUCKLE CAME BEFORE THE COURT ON THESE CHARGES, INCLUDING VIOLATION OF PAROLE BUT HE WAS RELEASED AGAIN. JOHN SOUNDED EXASPERATED.

HE STRESSED THAT HE NEEDS AN ARREST WARRANT TO BRING ARBUCKLE BACK FOR SENTENCING BECAUSE ARBUCKLE IS ALSO FACING 7 YEARS ON A PAROLE VIOLATION IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND THEY WILL NOT RELEASE HIM TO VERMONT OTHERWISE. THE JUDGE LOOKED OVER THE COURT FILES. SHE REITERATED ARBUCKLE CAME BEFORE THE COURT AND SAID HE WAS RELEASED ON CONDITION THAT ARBUCKLE HAVE A CURFEW FOR BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 9PM AND 4AM. JOHN SEEMED ANNOYED. RONNIE AND I JUST LOOKED AT EACH OTHER IN DISBELIEF. THE JUDGE GRANTED JOHN’S REQUEST FOR A WARRANT AND SET BAIL AT $10,000.00. ONCE THE WARRANT IS ISSUED A NEW DATE WILL BE SET FOR SENTENCING. THE IRONY OF IT IS ONCE ARBUCKLE IS BROUGHT BACK TO VERMONT HE WILL JOIN KYLE BOLASKI IN THE SAME JAIL.
