State v. Blondin

In State v. Blondin, 164 Vt. 55, 56-57, 665 A.2d 587, 589 (1995), the Court held that the plain meaning of 7031(b) does not require that "parole violators who are jailed and do not make bail on new charges be given double credit for time served before imposition of either the new or the underlying sentence, whichever comes later, even if the sentences are imposed consecutively." The Court noted that 7031(b) is intended to ensure that offenders be given credit "'for any days spent in custody in connection with the offense for which sentence was imposed.'" Id. at 57, 665 A.2d at 589 (quoting 7031(b)) .
