The arrest of Steven R. Lavigne, of louisiana. Mr Lavigne is being denied his civil rights to representation by a qualified P.C. MASS state appointed lawyer. The plymouth courts office of indegent attorneys has stopped representating Steven as if here were a wealthy person and told he would have to represent himself. Plus the indegent attorneys office of Plymounth county has called Steven's 70 yr old father in La., seeking money that he doesn't have. Is it normal for endagent attorneys to remove or be removed from a client the state has appointed them to represent and then go and solicite large amounts of money from the family. Is this normal in plymouth county, and is it normal for P.C. Mass to confiscate and take ownership/auction off a $10,000 auto before conviction and without contacting its owner Steven R. Lavigne's Father Mr. Percy R. Lavigne of La?(985-974-3468). Does the birth place of our country and its laws not take pride insuring the civil rights of all. Or does the DA., and Sheriff think all will go unnoticed because the defendant is alone and far from home? Does New England, Or plymouth county act as an all powerful Banana republic interested only in raising money. Because I assure u that after speaking with many numerous PC. Mass officials if Steven R. Lavigne had $10,000 cash as requested he would be walking the streets and be back at work. Can anyone help Steven or will be sent to debters prison? Should tourist shy away from P.C. MASS? Bubba.

Arrested for DUI while sleeping in your automobile in a walmart parking Lot. Nice Plymouth, county MASS. a fine way to encourage drunk driving on your highways!!

My first reaction on reading this, was to think that this officer showed a complete lack of common sense in arresting this sleeping drunk. After all, what is safer? A drunk sleeping it off in a parking lot, or a drunk trying to make it home without injuring or killing himself or someone else? Upon thinking it through though, I came to a different conclusion. What if that officer had left that man there to sleep it off , and the man came awake a mere ten or fifteen minutes later, still quite drunk, but convinced his little nap had sobered him enough to get home. How would that officer have felt if that man was involved in a serious accident and he (the officer) had been in a position to prevent it, but didn't. At first glance, it may seem the officer overreached in making this arrest, but in a situation such as this, isn't it better to err on the side of safety? Anyway, that's how I see it.
