After 63 trouble-free years, man arrested twice in a week


Yesterday, Thompson admitted to sufficient facts in the Danvers crash.

Though it was a first offense, Trautman urged a 60-day jail term, noting the potential danger to the public.

“The commonwealth has concerns about public safety,” Trautman argued.

Rush-Lloyd urged the judge to put Thompson on probation so he can enter a four-month treatment program offered by the Veterans Administration.

Barretto found Thompson guilty and imposed 18 months of probation, with conditions that include the VA program and no use of alcohol. He also ordered a 90-day loss of license for Thompson.
