Request For Dismissal Of Criminal Charge In Woodstock Fatality

May 7, 2012

in News,Police Log,Woodstock

The attorney of a Bridgewater man who struck a Woodstock woman in a fatal accident in October has asked the court that charges against his client be dropped.
Richmond Maxham of Bridgewater was handed a charge of negligent operation, which could mean up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
However, Maxham’s attorney says that the original Woodstock police findings determined that no criminal charge was warranted.
The report submitted to the court in January, after a detailed investigation, did indicate that a criminal charge was appropriate.
