    Vermont Selectman Denies Paying Alleged Prostitute for Sex
    NBC5

    A select board member in a central Vermont town pled not guilty to an accusation he paid an alleged prostitute for sex.

    Lynn Doney, 57, faced appeared in court Thursday morning in Burlington.

    Doney serves on the Northfield Select Board and is also an EMT and a part-time police officer in Barre Town.

    Police said the Harbor Place Motel in Shelburne alerted them to suspicious behavior in one of the units, where they found a man who admitted to having sex with the selectman for money.

    The man, who is half Doney’s age, told officers a recent paid sexual encounter was just one of several over the past few years in both Barre and Shelburne.

    According to court paperwork, Doney told police he was merely friends with the man, and he gave him money to help with his rent—not for sex.

    Because of his police background, Doney also faced an obstruction of justice charge, which he denied.

    Doney did not comment to reporters after he entered his two not guilty pleas.

    Police said earlier this week their investigation is ongoing.
