Ex-Attorney Gets 99 Days for Causing Crash

A Killington lawyer convicted of intentionally causing a serious crash was sentenced today.
Court documents indicate that Melvin Neisner will serve 99 days in jail after he was convicted last year of slamming on his brakes and injuring a motorcyclist who was tailgating him two years ago. The victim in the case asked the judge to give Neisner at least two years in prison. His license to practice law has already been suspended. The now former attorney could have served up to four years for intentionally causing the crash.
