Revoke Max Misch bail: Donovan

The Vermont Attorney General’s Office Nov. 17 filed a motion with the Criminal Division of the Bennington County Superior Court requesting that the Court revoke Max Misch’s right to bail.

In its motion, the Attorney General’s Office requests that bail be revoked based on the totality of Misch’s conduct across numerous pending cases, which the State believes “constitutes an aggregate threat to the integrity of the judicial system.”

Misch, who is currently being prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office for allegedly violating Vermont’s ban on large-capacity magazines, has been charged in eight matters since the Court first ordered conditions of release in February 2019—culminating in the most recent charge of Obstruction of Justice brought by the Bennington County State’s Attorney earlier this week.

In July 2021, the Attorney General’s Office requested the Court amend its conditions of release to include a curfew at Misch’s personal residence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, after Mr. Misch was charged with two counts of felony domestic assault and one misdemeanor count of domestic assault. This motion was denied.

“..[F]or over two and a half years Defendant [Mr. Misch] has been engaged in a clear pattern of alleged conduct that clearly jeopardizes public safety,” stated the Attorney General’s Office in its motion. “The defendant has been charged with large capacity ammunition related offenses, and since then has allegedly, systematically violated his conditions of release on four separate occasions, has been charged with three Disorderly Conduct offenses, two felony Domestic Assault offenses, and now a felony Obstruction of Justice case.”

If the Court is not inclined to grant the request to revoke bail, the Attorney General’s Office requested the Court amend the conditions of release previously imposed to include a curfew at Misch’s personal residence 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to protect the public from a continuing pattern of behavior that existing conditions of release have failed to protect against.

Misch first came into the public eye for leaving critical and racist comments on social media to and about Rep. Kiah Morris (D-Bennington), a black woman married to a white man.

  1. Now that Sen. Leahy’s seat is officially up for grabs, be on the lookout for the horses in this race to replace him to be on their best game by engaging in Vermont’s most popular spectator sport: Extreme Virtue Signaling. Mr. Misch has a very real penchant for digging himself a deeper hole, but we can expect charlatans like our Atty General to make “max”imum use of it for his own political advantage.
    Now that the contest is on, let’s see what kind of whacky displays of moral grandstanding our other fine demoKKKrats can come up with to politely beat each other over the head with as they all claim to be the rightful heirs to Pat’s coveted seat.

    • So…we conservatives are for “law and order” but you’re deciding to cry crocodile tears for a many-times-over violent offender because it gives you an opportunity to spit vitriol and call the majority of your neighbors Klansmen…? It’s interesting that the actual KKK member is not described as such by you, nor admonished for his racist and violent actions – against women and children, no less. Do not claim to be for law and order and do not claim to be a conservative, if you’re going to attack a public servant for simply doing his job. Aren’t you just “virtue signaling” to violent offenders and white supremacists that you’re mindlessly rooting for them? Why are we so quick to abandon our conservative principles? And in exchange for what? – the opportunity to show the world how small and cruel we truly are? Count me out. You couldn’t make us look worse if you were trying.
