Jury Trial in Brattleboro Maillet Cleared in Auto Fatality torney Raymond G. Bolton argued throughout the trial that Maillet had not been driving in a reasonably prudent manner and that he passed up several opportunities to call police and the rescue squad immediately after the accident. Maillet, a Mount Anthony Union High School board member and former Pownal selectman, issued a prepared statement after the jury returned its verdict. Im grateful for the patience and understanding of the 12 men and women who served on my jury, Maillet said. the scene of the accident, even helping Laumann take measurements of the accident scene.

Carter also said the only witness that he presented, who was an expert witness on nighttime visual observation, also helped win the acquittal. But theres really no way of knowing what goes on inside a jury room, Carter said. Carter said that Bennington County States Attorney Bolton performed fairly and honorably at the Bolton was unavailable for comment Friday night. dent was Frederick Adler, 12, who recovered and testified at the trial. The trial was moved from Bennington to Brattleboro because of extensive publicity at the time of the accident.

Defense attorney Harvey Carter argued throughout the eight-day trial that the boys brought the accident upon themselves by walking on the wrong side of the road on a dark night and that Maillet acted reasonably and responsibly after the accident. Bennington County States At Drop Dirty Tricks Case BRATTLEBORO Joseph Maillet of Pownal was found innocent Friday night of two felony counts in a case that grew out of a fatal accident a year ago. Maillet was found innocent by a jury in Brattleboro District Court of careless and negligent driving with a fatality resulting, and leaving the scene of an accident. The jury deliberated more than four hours before reaching a decision. Killed in the accident Nov.

29, 1983, was Patrick Cahalan, 14, of Pownal. Severely injured in the acci Bos Not By SUSAN SMALLHEER Southern Vermont Bureau WHITE RIVER JUNCTION Windsor County States Attorney William S. Bos said Friday he had not ruled out criminal charges against anyone as a result of his investigation into dirty tricks in the Windsor County Senate campaign. Bos said he hadn't completed his investigation into the two brochures that surfaced in the closing days of the six-way race. He said he planned on calling about nine people during the second half of the secret inquest he' is conducting into the incidents.

He also said he hadnt granted immunity to anyone involved in the two cases of fraudulent campaign literature that surfaced during the hotly contested Senate race. Im thankful for the American justice system, which has served me well, he said. Defense attorney Carter said late Friday night he was very tired after the trial but not at all surprised by the verdict. Ive known Joe and Jean Maillet for a long time and they are very decent people, Carter said. Carter said some of the key testimony in the trial came from Trooper Kenneth Laumann of the state police at Shaftsbury, who was the first investigating officer at the accident scene.

Laumann testified that Maillet was helpful and cooperative at received $103,000 in 1984' That money was spread among several attorneys. Hillard has admitted writing the flier and paying for its publication, but he said he had the brochure destroyed once he learned it was illegal to send it through the mail without a name and address of who was sending it. However, some Windsor County Republicans have said they received the flier anonymously, while others said they received bundles of the flier from Hillard. Hillard is a longtime county Republican Party worker who also was a volunteer on the campaigns Republicans Harry Ames of Woodstock and Carolyn Miller of Norwich. Hillard has hired White River Around Vermont Doctors Reattach Ring Finger EAST MONTPELIER David Keefe, a 52-year-old postal clerk, had one of his fingers reattached at the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont in Burlington Thursday night.

He severed the finger and part of another while snowblowing his driveway. Virginia Keefe said Friday that her husband, who works at the Montpelier Post Office, was clearing the driveway at the couples home on Route I for about three hours Thursday afternoon when he apparently forgot the machine was still on and went to wipe the snow from the blades with his left hand. He was extremely tired and I think he just forgot it was running, Mrs. Keefe said. He came to the door shouting how stupid he was, how he got his fingers caught.

His hand was mangled." Keefe is left-handed. Montpelier police said the accident occurred at 2: 15 p.m. Robert Snetsinger of the Montpelier Fire Department said the couple -came in there and were taken to Central Vermont Hospital in Berlin by ambulance. They were later taken to the Burlington medical center. Mrs.

Keefe said x-rays were taken at CVH but there was little doctors there could do about reattaching the finger. She believed because Keefe was wearing gloves the injury was less severe than it might have been. She said his ring finger was completely severed, but was contained in the glove. About one-third to one-half of his middle finger was cut off by the snowblower blades and couldnt be salvaged to be reattached, Mrs. Keefe said.

She said surgeons in Burlington reattached his ring finger, but won't know for several weeks whether the operation was successful, although she said the doctors were optimistic. A spokeswoman at the Burlington hospital said Keefe was listed in good condition and would be discharged Friday. Hospital Closes Baby Ward BERLIN Central Vermont Hospital will close its 11-bed pediatrics ward this month because of a declining number of patients, a problem that has plagued the Berlin facility for more than year. Area pediatricians say they are reluctantly going along with the hospital's plan, which will place children in a special area on a general medicalsurgical ward with adults. Despite a number of inconveniences for nurses, doctors, patients and parents, the physicians this morning agreed with hospital officials who stress quality of care for young patients will not be affected.

Hospital President Joel Walker announced the move to employees Friday morning. He said the chief reason was the low number of patients. Sanders Makes It Official BURLINGTON (AP) Mayor Bernard Sanders, using a host of superlatives to describe the accomplishments of his administration, launched his bid for a third term on Friday. During the last three and a half years I think it is fair to say that there has been no municipal government in Vermont history which has attempted to do more for working people, the elderly and the low-income, said Sanders. The independent mayor, who describes himself as a socialist, pledged to continue to work long and hard for the people of the states largest city.

As long as I am mayor I will advocate a strong social policy which is based on human compassion, a striving for a sense of neighborhood and a sense of community and a deep-felt belief in justice and human dignity, the mayor said. Sanders first won election in 1981, when he toppled the longtime incumbent Democrat from office by 10 votes. In 1983, though, he won re-election overwhelmingly. In his formal announcement Friday the mayor praised the economic boom being enjoyed in Burlington and took some credit as well. Economic development is caused by a hundred different factors, he said.

To the degree that a city itself can play an active role, I will defend the record of the office of community and economic development as perhaps the best office of its kind in the United States." State Lottery MONTPELIER (AP) The number 472 was drawn Friday in the daily Vermont lottery. Currency Exchange Focus Of Boston Demonstrations Ready to Bos said at this point he had decided not to bring charges Simply for the writing of the brochures, despite the state law. While the law calls for prosecution against anyone who anonymously writes, prints, publishes, posts or circulates or causes to be written, printed, published, posted or circulated through the mails, criminal charge concerning authorship wouldnt hold up in court, he said. That section of the Vermont Election Law is blatantly unconstitutional, he said, because of free speech issues. He said he doesnt care to carry such a challenge to the Vermont Supreme Court.

However, he said his investigation was continuing to determine how the brochures were written, distributed and mailed. ounce gold coins minted in South Africa. Lee Farris, a spokeswoman for the group TransAfrica says the protesters want Deak-Perera to stop selling the coins until labor leaders recently arrested in South Africa are released. But DElia is puzzled why his office is the focus of the protests'. These coins are available at virtually every coin dealer in the city in the state, he said.

DElia said he met with protesters for an hour on Wednesday to discuss their position. Were sympathetic to their cause, he said. We let them voice their concerns. DElia said he explained he was powerless to change company policy. But the protesters continued their attempts to persuade employees to stop selling the coins and police moved in, arresting four men for trespass while another 50 marched on the sidewalk outside the office.

The alleged trespassers were a distinguished group, including George Wald, winner of the' 1967 Nobel P.rize for his work in physiology and, professor emeritus at Harvard University; City Councilor Bruce Bolling; Willard R. Johnson, a political science professor at MIT and Steve Louis, head of Local 509 of the Service Employees International Union. The four face a Dec. 21 hearing. When the protesters returned on Thursday, police arrested another group of notables: Sen.

George Bachrach, D-Watertown, Domenic Bozzotto of the Hotel and Restaurant Workers Union, Brandeis, University sociology professor Karen Fields, Harvard University fellow Bill Sutherland, Loretta Williams of the Unitarian-Universalist Church in Boston and Marilyn Richardson, a professor of humanities at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. All six were released on $15 bail. DElia said his office, which also sells Canadian Maple Leaf, Mexican Cenenario and U.S. commemorative gold coins, does little business in Krugerrands. He also notes that only a minuscule amount of the gold mined in South Africa is minted.

The rest is used in jewelry and other personal items, which-D'Elia says makes jewelry stores as much a target of protests as, his office. Junction lawyer Harry Black and has refused to comment on the brochure, saying he Was following his attorneys orders. But on Thursday he said he gave some of the brochures to Senate candidate Harry Ames, a Woodstock Republican. Ames has been unavailable for Comment all week. However, the authorship of another brochure, which slammed Miller and carried the name and address of Welch, hasnt been determined.

It also hasnt been determined if the two brochures were linked. Bos said he had requested the court time for another inquest session, but it had yet to be scheduled.
