CONTACT: Robert Menzel, Assistant Attorney General, (802) 828-5512

June 25, 2010

Vermont Attorney General William H. Sorrell announced today that on June 22, 2010, Floyd Amidon was sentenced in Windham District Court to one to three years imprisonment, all of which was suspended but for ninety days, as a result of his conviction on one count of felony Home Improvement Fraud. A Windham County jury found Amidon guilty on one count of felony Home Improvement Fraud after a week-long trial in March. The jury acquitted Amidon on one additional charge of Home Improvement Fraud and a charge of Grand Larceny, and was unable to reach a verdict on a charge of False Pretenses. The State subsequently dismissed the False Pretenses charge in light of the sentence imposed by the Court. The ninety days to serve in prison was stayed by the Court pending appeal of the conviction.
