MIDDLEBURY — A two-judge panel has ordered convicted sex offender Richard Laws, 49, to stay away from two Addison County women for at least the next 12 months.
Acting Family Court Judge Barry Peterson and Assistant Judge Irene Poole heard statements from the two women during separate hearings on Wednesday about their desire to have no contact with Laws, who was released from prison last Thursday.
He had completed serving a 23-year sentence for the rape and brutal beating of a woman in Waitsfield in 1992.
