Moretown VT Man Sentenced for Luring a Child
A Moretown VT man will not serve any time in jail for Luring a Child, Disseminating Indecent Materials to a Minor and Marijuana Cultivation. VT Attorney General Thomas J. Donovan announced late Friday that Bradley Baril was sentenced on May 18, in Vermont Superior Court after pleading guilty to the charges.
The charges stem from contact Baril made with a 13-year old girl in Missouri. An investigation the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force revealed that Baril engaged in online conversations and sent the girl a video of him masturbating. While executing a search warrant at Baril’s residence 35 marijuana plants were discovered as part of cultivation operation Baril had in his basement.
The State argued for a sentence of seven to 12 years with all suspended but three years to serve in prison. The court sentenced Mr. Baril to two years and 10 months to six years, all suspended except for four months of home confinement and probation for 10 years. While on probation, Mr. Baril will be subject to special conditions of probation designated for sex offenders, including conditions that require him to successfully complete sex offender treatment and limit his access to the internet and to children under the age of 16. Mr. Baril will also be required to register as a sex offender.
Card Access Restricted At Dartmouth After Spam Incident
Card access to residence halls at Dartmouth will be restricted to residents only after a student received a threatening message Sunday evening. The Dartmouth is reporting the message was part of an internet scam, according to a campus-wide alert sent Sunday evening. Hanover Police confirmed that the email sent to the student was a scam, and the student is safe. Safety and Security have also increased the number of campus patrols “to provide reassurance to the community,” the campus-wide email stated. Residence hall restrictions will be for an undetermined amount of time in response to heightened student concerns. The scam is unrelated but follows a burglary at Kappa Delta Epsilon sorority on Wednesday and a reported laundry bag theft from a residence hall on Friday.
The internet scam has been around since 2011 and identifies a party as a target for harm unless monetary compensation is paid, according to the email.
