Re: “Bennington Locks Up More People Than Any Other Vermont County

I'm not sure if this is the place to be with my situation. As I found the court system in Bennington to be some what fair in most criminal cases. When it come to a civil case, if your poor you have no where to turn, because you can not defend your self nor can you get help from a public defender. And yes I did hire a lawyer that cost 3,200 dollars to fight a case for me. And when he took care of the criminal part of the case,and not the civil. Now it rest in the states hands. Being I couldn't afford to hire another civil lawyer to help me. I had some requirements to meet , in order to get my license back.At this point it was like fighting city Hall, so I do whet the state has asked me to do, met all of the requirements, and all paper work signed by all state officials. When it comes time to get my license back, I'm told because the paper work never landed on the desk of the registry. And now I would have to start all requirements all over again. That means another 2,000 dollars that I just paid and took me three yrs to pay back. And that I would need another 1,000 to start again.I find this very unfair. How does the system expect people, to get out of a system. When a situation like this happens. And the money you have already paid for. They expect you to pay for it all again..I find this very unfair....
