Man sentenced in 4 vehicle deaths in Vt. court

Posted: Updated:

NEWPORT, Vt. (AP) - A driver convicted of being responsible for the 1998 deaths of four teenagers is asking a judge to reconsider the sentence imposed for his third probation violation.

Gregory Twofoot, 34, was sentenced to 5-15 years in prison on four counts of gross negligent operation of a motor vehicle, fatality resulting.

The Caledonian Record reports a judge ordered him to serve the remainder of his minimum sentence, estimated at 18 months. Now the judge has to decide whether the time frame for a sentence reconsideration has long passed.

Twofoot was driving a vehicle that overturned on Interstate 91 and landed in Cobb Brook, near Newport. Four people died; Twofoot and a passenger survived.

Twofoot is accused of violating conditions by taking drugs and drinking alcohol.
