Court upholds probation sentence

January 18, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Ex-convict Thomas G. Lamoureux was properly sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing his girlfriend and stabbing her brother while he was on probation for manslaughter in 2011, the state’s Supreme Court ruled.
Lamoureux, who was sentenced as a probation violator on the latter offenses, challenged the strength of the evidence in an appeal to the high court.
In a decision handed up Friday, the justices affirmed the sentence, saying prosecutors met the required standard of proof to uphold the charge that Lamoureux had violated his probation.
