VT: Supreme Court Overturns Murder Conviction

In an unusual move, the Vermont Supreme Court today overturned the murder conviction of a Windsor County man who has spent three years in prison for a shooting he has long claimed was self-defense.

In a 5-0 opinion, justices ruled that a trial judge improperly excluded key evidence that could have bolstered Kyle Bolaski's claim of self-defense in the 2008 shooting of Vincent Tamburello, who had charged at a group of Bolaski's friends with a small axe. Additionally, the court said the judge gave improper instructions to jurors that made the murder conviction more likely.

NOW TRUE JUSTICE CAN BE SOUGHT IN THIS CASE

Lavoie, the crooked prosecutor in the case evaded service concerning my motion to intervene in the district court.

Zimmerman who i successfully sued in federal court for civil rights charges ruled on my motion to intervene in the district court with a conflict of interest.

Zimmerman is now retired --Justice has prevailed.

I would be very surprised if Lavoie stays on, If he does I will file to intervene again based upon his wholesale violations of attorney ethical precepts. THis Lavoie character must be stopped.

I have no opinion about guilt or innocence, I only can swear to the fact that Lavoie engages in prosecutorial misconduct and any case he is involved in violates Due Process.
