• Vt man reaches plea deal in assaults, I-91 case
     | September 14,2013

    WHITE RIVER JUNCTION A Vermont man is expected to spend five years in prison on charges of sexually assaulting two girls and leaving an accident scene after his car struck an already-deceased Dartmouth College student on Interstate 91.

    Shane Harlow, of Quechee, faced the charges simultaneously, first charged with the misdemeanor count of leaving the scene of an accident last year. The assault charges, stemming from incidents in 2008 and 2012, came afterward.

    In a plea agreement, the 48-year-old Harlow pleaded guilty to the assaults and no contest to the accident charge in Windsor County criminal court Thursday.

    Prosecutor Michael Kainen said the autopsy suggested the student was dead before Harlow, a former Dartmouth security guard on his way home from work, ran over his body.
