Elizabeth Rust OUI Case Continued to Feb. 4

Next court date will be for a discovery and election hearing.

will next be in court on Feb. 4 for a discovery and election hearing, according to the Framingham District Court clerk's office.

Rust was last in court on Dec. 21 for a compliance and election hearing, but the case was continued.

The clerk's office did not have any information on whether her driving restrictions were extended.

She can drive Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. She cannot drive during the weekends.

Rust pleaded not guilty to the charge and has been subjected to random alcohol tests. Judge Robert Harbour stated she must also attend two Alcoholics Anonymous meetings a week and cannot drink any alcohol.

Rust crashed her car during the early morning hours of May 9 on Concord Road when she hit two signs and a granite post at the Union Avenue intersection.

According to the police report obtained at the clerk’s office, Rust told Officer Erin Corey she had recently left Lavender Asian Cuisine & Bar after Town Meeting ended the night of May 8. Rust repeatedly told Corey she worked for the town.

Corey asked Rust if she would take road sobriety tests, and originally agreed. But Rust started to complain of dizziness and was transported to Emerson Hospital.

Corey noted in her report there was a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Rust, that her speech was slurred and her eyes were bloodshot.

At one point, Corey also noted Rust said she couldn't see her despite standing 2 feet away.

Sudbury police opted to cite Rust rather than arrest her that night due to staffing.

The Sudbury Fire Department was also ordered to release all records regarding the crash from May 9.

The prosecutor is Dannon Stacer.

This is such a pathetic reality check. THIRD time OUI, so drunk she runs over an island, takes out two signs and hits a granite post. Then pulls out social security card instead of license, stinks of alcohol, tells officer she can't see her and confesses to drinking at Lavendar all the while stating who she is. Then pleads not guilty...by the time case actually is heard she will have done her "service" right and will get off. She already has been let off, starting that night she was not arrested. All who you know I guess.. Always will be no matter what you do. Happy new year

I am embarassed to say I live in Sudbury. There is no integrity, no accountability and the people who run the town do not have to follow the rules. Educate and evacuate.

John Q Public would have been arrested on the spot and loss of license immediately without work provisions. This is a total mockery of our justice system. Sudbury, what a well run town!

How confident are we that she was drunk? Isn't it normal to hand a police officer your SSI card when they ask for your license? Only Beth, Beth, Beth, Beth Rust. Community Housing Specialist.

Either Rust is going to waive jury trial or defense believes prosecutor or police have not complied with judges order Given Globe story on judge trials and Sudbury police non arrest, either scenario merits investigation and reporting by Patch Rule 5 Hearing date for jury discovery compliance and jury waiver election
