Simpson moving forward for trial in federal court

BURLINGTON—The federal court trial for a Vermont man, who is charged with abducting a woman, crossing state lines, and sexually assaulting her in front of her son in Windsor County four years ago, is likely to last less than two weeks when it begins next month.
Everett A. Simpson, 45, has pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court to two kidnapping charges involving a mother and child and two interstate transportation of stolen car counts all stemming from a January 2019 crime spree, records show.
