1 min read

NEWPORT — An inmate at the Northern State Correctional Center is facing charges for allegedly attempting to obstruct justice and violate court-ordered conditions by contacting a witness while incarcerated.

Trent J. Beayon, 23, of Burlington, was already being held without bail on attempted murder among other charges related to an incident that occurred in Orwell in November.

On Dec. 4, Vermont State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) received information suggesting Beayon may have tried to reach out or send messages to a witness of the original incident.

Investigations by the Vermont State Police and the Vermont Department of Corrections revealed that Beayon used the inmate telephone system, which records, monitors, and reviews calls, to make contact in breach of his court-ordered conditions.

These conditions explicitly prohibited him from communicating with several individuals involved in the Orwell incident.

Beayon now faces additional legal challenges for the alleged violations as authorities continue to uphold the integrity of the justice process.

The case remains under investigation.
