• Man convicted of sexually assaulting woman
    November 09,2012

    BRATTLEBORO A jury has convicted a Vermont man of sexually assaulting a woman he had met over the Internet.

    David Piquette, of Brattleboro, was arrested in December after the woman told police he forced her to have sex with him.

    Court records say the woman met the 45-year-old Piquette online in August 2011. They met in person in September in Massachusetts. In October, she visited him in Brattleboro and then this month, after she lost her job, she moved in with him.

    The two began arguing over money. The woman told him she wanted to leave, but then he grabbed her keys and sexually assaulted her.

    Court records also said Piquette was accused of striking the woman and choking her. She eventually left.
