Briefly | Sept. 28

An update on the Allan and Joann Thomas sentencing date, vehicular homicide charges, and upcoming blood drives.

VEHICULAR HOMICIDE CHARGES: Brandon M. Tvedt was charged with vehicular homicide, driving with a suspended license, and driving without an interlock device on Aug. 19. The Maple Valley man was allegedly driving on Highway 18 on June 28 with his girlfriend when he collided with the back of a stalled semi-truck. Tvedt was transported to a hospital, while the girl — previously an Enumclaw resident with family in the area — was killed at the scene. Tvedt was arranged Sept. 7, and is being held on $100,000 bail. His court date is currently scheduled for Nov. 2.

ALLAN AND JOANN THOMAS SENTENCING UPDATE: The Thomases, who were found guilty of conspiracy, mail fraud, wire fraud, aggravated identity theft, and money laundering last May, were originally scheduled to be sentenced last Friday, Sept. 23. Their sentencing date has moved to Dec. 9.
