Five years ago, a hit-and-run crash killed Leo Branchaud outside his Tinmouth farm. His wife, Tami Carboni-Branchaud, continues to work the property she and her late husband bought in 2003 when they moved to Vermont.
A bill signed by Gov. Scott is designed to provide landlords with much-needed financial relief.
A farming community has rallied around Tami Carboni-Branchaud, who was widowed in the crash and paid special tribute to her husband for the sentencing.
The town of Tinmouth stepped in to keep a farm alive after one of their neighbors died. Now the prosecutor is seeking the harshest possible sentence against the man who killed him.
The case has galvanized the town of Tinmouth in support of the victim’s widow. The prosecutor said a felony charge was contemplated all along.
The hit-and-run death of a local farmer, in which the defendant is a man with more than three dozen previous convictions, has been a flashpoint.
