New court date for driver in Macone Pond plunge
The short but predictable trip that Cam Schieffer took from a plunge in Macone Pond on a snowy Sunday morning on February 26 and a subsequent Operating Under the Influence (OUI) arrest, to a Concord courtroom is not yet over. Schieffer, 18, of Concord, appeared before Judge Robert McKenna, Jr. in the Concord District Court on Monday, March 13. At that time his attorney requested time for additional paperwork to be completed. This request was in compliance with existing rules of procedure and the judge set an April 20 date for Schieffer's next appearance in court. At that time he will either plead out of the charge or go to trial. Two weeks ago the Mosquito mistakenly reported his age as 17.
The operator of the second car to end up in the pond was not charged and Inspector Scott Barnes of the Carlisle police stated that neither Officer Andy Booth nor Sgt. Tom Whelan, who were at the scene of the accident, found cause to charge him.
