All But 3 Charges Dropped On Burtville Car Dealer

Fined $1,684.50
All but three of 270 charges against Burtville car dealer Thomas Bidwell, owner of Bidwell Auto were withdrawn by State Police of Ridgway yesterday at District Court 55-4-01.

Bidwell had been charged with 270 charges in early August after Troopers investigated the dealership's records. Most of the charges were for documentation of cars junked by crushing.

District Judge Barbara Easton fined Bidwell a total of $1,684.50 for the three remaining summary charges which were transferred to traffic court status.

Were the other 267 trumped up? Sounds like the State was on a witch usual.

Hand up said...

No! It sounds like the state just gave this business owner a "hand up", a fine his business can afford to pay and now is the time to fly right and play by the rules like the rest of us business owners follow daily!

The state police always pyramid charges in hopes the defendant will plea.

Mr Bidwell knew that he should have doing the paperwork. Anyone that is in the automobile business knows that titles must be processed on a timely basis. This should serve as a wake up call. There is no acceptable excus for his lack of attention to this.
