N.Y. cops search for man who fled Vermont
MIDDLEBURY — The Addison County State’s Attorney’s Office is working with police authorities in New York to deliver a Port Henry, N.Y., man for arraignment at the county courthouse on a felony charge of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child in Addison County.
The defendant, 36-year-old Kevin D. Scott, was originally scheduled to be arraigned on the charge late last month. But he did not appear on his original arraignment date, nor on two subsequent dates on which his appearance had been rescheduled, according to Addison County Deputy State’s Attorney Dennis Wygmans.
Addison County Superior Court Judge Robert Mello issued a warrant for Scott’s arrest last week, Wygmans said.
Conviction on a felony count of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child carries a penalty of two years to 15 years in jail, and/or a fine of up to $5,000, according to state statutes.
