DuBois has filed formal notice of his intent to appeal. He did not respond to requests for interviews left via e-mail, text message and voicemail, but has previously maintained his innocence – publicly and throughout court proceedings – alleging that the environmental agency’s actions are part of a calculated political campaign to discredit him.
“Typically people don’t fight us in a situation like this,” said Assistant County Attorney Tom Robertson, adding that DuBois had already filed a notice of appeal for the March 18 decision. “There’s no question that the violation exists. Most people say, ‘oh, let me correct it.’ Whether it was accidental or intentional, usually when you catch people, they fix things.”
