WHITE RIVER JUNCTION — A 48-year-old Randolph man who was on probation after he pleaded guilty to charges of physically threatening his public defender attorney has been sentenced to a second prison sentence for violating the terms of his probation.

Edwin Huntley received a sentence of three to six months, all suspended, after pleading guilty to charges of simple assault and criminal mischief in Windsor Superior Court this week.

Huntley assaulted a man in a parking lot in Randolph on May 10, 2021, and then, nearly a month later, on June 9, 2021, became involved in a confrontation at Erin’s General Store in West Fairlee where he rammed his truck into the ice machine, according to police and prosecutors. 

At the time of two incidents, Huntley was still on probation from his 2019 conviction for physically threatening his defense lawyer at the office of a law firm in Chelsea.

In that 2019 case, Huntley had received a sentence of six months to 12 months, all suspended except for 15 days, with two years probation that was set to end on Oct. 1, 2021.

As part of his latest plea agreement, Huntley must pay restitution of $2,500 to Erin’s General Store in $10 monthly installments, not trespass on store property and participate in a restorative justice program, according to court records.
