    So - no news on how he pled on the 6/2/20 change of plea hearing??

    Fed charges coming up on 7/2 for sentencing as he pled guilty on 3/4/20.

    I'm so frustrated that I gave this sick man my money... I think I will burn his book, just to vent my frustrations... I know this applies to me as well (but I know who/what I am)... But it makes you wonder about people obsessed with crimes against children.

    Correct!
    But unfortunately, you're kind of talking about ALL of us!

    So... no news on "what" happened at the change of plea hearing back on 6/2?

    I searched the Vermont court site thinking they might have rescheduled it - but it goes thru 9/23 - and he is not on the list.

    If anyone "sees" anything - please post! TIA! [​IMG]

    edited to add: He does have a sentencing hearing on 7/2 re his Federal indictment where he plead guilty!

    I'm confused.... is he out on community supervision? Or am I just misinterpreting the Vinelink and Vermont DOC info? See attached screenshots... Vermont DOC site says his current agency is Rutland Probation and Parole, with a booking date of 3/12/20. And Vinelink says his current status is Community Supervision, also dated 3/12/20.

    I know I have to be misinterpreting something.

    right but this date says 3/12/20 that’s why I’m confused.

    Eta- IIRC when he was in federal custody/US marshal service custody, we weren’t able to locate him in VT or NH Vinelink, or in the federal inmate search. Which is why it made me raise my eyebrow that I saw him in vinelink/VT DOC at all. But my memory isn’t always the best lol

    Thursday, July 2nd:
    *Sentencing Hearing (Federal Charges) (@ 2:30pm ET) – VT - *David J. Hughes (aka SuperDave) (37) - U.S. Attorney for the District of Vermont had Hughes arrested (12/27/18), charged (1/3/19), indicted & arraigned (1/10/19) with 1 count of production of child pornography & 1 count of possession of child pornography (Federal charges). Plead not guilty. Held without bond.
    Hughes was arrested & made his initial appearance to answer the complaint in federal court on 12/27/18. At the Jan. 2, 2019 hearing on the government’s motion for pretrial detention, U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Conroy granted the motion & ordered Hughes detained without bail pending trial.
    Court information from 1/2/19 thru 12/5/19 reference post #820 here:
    SuperDave arrested?

    1/3/20: Order #44 Motion denying request for an evidentiary Franks hearing & taking under advisement #34 Motion to Suppress Evidence & Statements as to Hughes. 2/11/20: Plea Agreement as to Hughes. 2/18/20: Notice of hearing: Change of Plea Hearing set for 3/4/20 @ 2:30pm in Rutland Courtroom before Chief Judge Geoffrey W.

According to a plea agreement filed in the case, Hughes & the government have agreed to a sentence of 96 months (8 years) with a minimum term of five years of supervision after his release. As part of the agreement reached on Wednesday, Hughes must plead guilty to the Rutland County charges before his sentencing in federal court which is scheduled for July 2. Hughes had been expected to change his plea on March 9 but the local agreement is still being worked out. Any sentence from the state is expected to be served at the same time as the federal prison sentence.

    *(State Charges) charged & arraigned (12/21/18) on 1 count of aggravated sexual assault of a victim less than 13 yrs old (Felony 1) & 1 count of lewd & lascivious conduct with a child (Felony 3). Hughes pleaded not guilty to both charges prior to his arrest on federal charges. Plead not guilty. Unsecured $5K appearance bond. Released. Rebooked on 12/27/18; in Federal custody. Rutland County

    The year on the above judgement is 2009. Is this an earlier judgement for the same man as "SuperDave?"

    This David Hughes was sentenced to 206 months in 2009. If my math is correct that's over 17 years.

    You are correct.

    I don't see how this person is SuperDave unless he was posting on Webslueths from federal prison and was released early in order to commit the crimes in 2014. JMO
