A little over two weeks after we published the FOIL request results in which we finally acquired the Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s Body Cam Policy/Orders, we have discovered that the Sheriffs Office is running a dash cam pilot program… Continue reading

Cattaraugus County DA Lori Rieman makes the Buffalo News again. Further proof she is unfit to hold office. This article highlights how she claims how a family member, the uncle of murder victim Richard Metcalf Jr. who was murdered by Matthew Cross, who was hired by the Ellicottville Police Department after he murdered Mr. Metcalf, threatened her for a e-mail he sent her concerning her conduct in the murder investigation. This is standard practice by the DA’s office , the ADA’s like Elizabeth Ensell Lafuer use it all of them time in a attempt to intimidate the defense. Elizabeth Ensell Lafuer is the same ADA that ran over a woman in a clearly marked crosswalk in Olean New York and the Olean Police Department covered it up;
“Richard A. Metcalf Jr. died five years ago Thursday after Holding Center deputies knotted a spit mask around his neck and pulled a pillow case over his head. Though a state agency urged prosecutors to consider charging key jail deputies in the inmate’s death, two potential counts are now off the table: manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. A five-year statute of limitations applies to those charges, which some court observers said were a prosecutor’s most likely options if a criminal case were to begin.
The prosecutor in the matter, Lori Pettit Rieman of Cattaraugus County, has given no sign she will charge anyone, even though Metcalf’s death has twice been determined a homicide — a death at the hands of others.
Rieman, who took on the case because the Erie County District Attorney’s Office had a conflict of interest, has said only that she will announce her decision when ready. She did not respond to a telephone message or an email seeking comment for this article. To read the full Buffalo News article click here.
Further proof she is not fit to hold the office of District Attorney.
The Attorney for Town of Little Valley, New York Court Clerk Jillian Koch who is also employed by the state as a county court clerk filed a fraudulent document in a federal court case that is holding Koch accountable for her criminal conduct where she illegally edited out the audio transcribe file and violated the criminal procedure law concerning a CPL 730 motion. This shows you how worried they are about the case. A CPL 730 motion is a motion that claims a person is incapable of defending themselves or assisting their attorney which they used in an attempt to elevate the criminal and civil liability they created for themselves.
They had to file a fraudulent document in order to cover up their crimes. Below you will see the victims FOIL request dated and sent on May 16, 2017, for the dates between April 1st, 2015 to May 31st, 2016 for any and all communications from “…to and from any and all County of Cattaraugus and Town of Little Valley Court, its employees and/or agents and/or servants” to the Office of Mental Health and their response which shows that they never received a thing on the victim concerning the bogus CPL 730 proceeding that William Preston Marshall demanded. Marshall you may recall never filed an oath of office when by law he was mandated to. By him failing within the time allowed to file he legally lost his authority to act as a assistant district attorney and all his cases he oversaw must be vacated. What Jillian did was send the final order that committed their victim for observation to the director of community services for Cattaraugus county, which by law she had to transmit it directly to the the commissioner of mental health. It never occurred.
Section 111.4 Commitment to custody of Commissioner of Mental Health (b): The court shall forward to the Commissioner of Mental Health the order committing the defendant to his custody together with a copy of the examination reports, a copy of the accusatory instrument and, if available, a copy of the pre-sentence report….
The FOIL response from the Office of Mental Health dated May 30, 2017 came back “After a diligent search, we were unable to locate records responsive to your request.” NOTHING.
and guess what happens….
…why a “CPL DESIGNATION NOTIFICATION” from the Office of Mental Health appears in the pleading of Jillian Koch. The date on the letter is April 8, 2017. So lets just say the process which led to the order was legal. BY violating the law this allowed local deep state to manipulate the time of the victims arrival to Elmira. The victim was held another four days in the county jail which by law you once a designation is made they are to be moved to a OMH facility. Once he was sent to Elmira he was released within 24 hours. The victim was kidnapped on April 6, 2016 and held until April 12, 2106, one day before he was required to appear at a DMV refusal re-hearing and another hearing on the 14th. They were setting it up so he would miss the hearings, lose his license and possibly worse. The victim saw this coming and planned for it. If he was grabbed he would have someone alert the DMV that he could not attend. The DMV was alerted, the hearing was changed and the victim won the Appeal/hearing de-novo which basically proved that the victim was more then capable of defending himself or assisting his attorney. However the most ironic issue was he was released in 24 hours after being sent to Elmira because he did not meet the requirements he was sent there for which is the same thing they attempted to do when they sent him to ECMC CPEP where he was released in 16 hours.
Adding to the irony is the fact that at least one law firm in Buffalo has also claimed that it is in fact the employees and/or agents and/or servants of the County Of Cattaraugus District Attorney’s Office that has mental issues. In a 4 million dollar lawsuit filed against Rieman by one of the top firms in Buffalo, the firm stated on record that; “Defendants were negligent in the hiring of the aforesaid agents, servants and/or employees in that they knew, or in the exercise of reasonable care should have known, that said agents, servants and/or employees of Defendant did not possess the temperament and psychological makeup to properly carry out their duties as responsible government officials.“ You can’t make this stuff up folks…
County of Cattaraugus District Attorney Lori Rieman did not file an Oath of Office from 2010 to 2014! By law she did not have the authority to function as the district attorney! All cases under her control must be vacated. While Rieman did finally file a Oath of Office in 2014, Assistant District Attorney William Preston Marshall, /AKA/ Preston Marshall, /AKA/ Bill Marshall and ‘ADA’ Kelly Balcom did not, as of October 6, 2017 filed any. They are without authority to prosecute any cases and Rieman was without authority to prosecute ANYTHING from 2010 to 2014. Certified copies from the Public Record and articles from official state website and sources that can be viewed in the following article prove it…
On August 31, 2017, a victim of the overwhelming corruption that has been uncovered in Cattaraugus County New York, home of the most corrupt court system in the State of New York and possibly the United States was told by Cattaraugus County Court Clerk Jane St John he was not allowed to review his court record anymore because it was in appeal. First of all it was not in appeal and second the public has the right to review any court record they please. There are some exceptions to this right such as family court and sealed records where the general public is not allowed access to, however the parties involved are.

Cattaraugus County Chief Court Clerk Rigs Jury in Kochan case. ONE JUROR DEAD SINCE 2010. 50% of the jury were local government employees, and another 16% were related to them, or had a predisposed bias. The ‘judge’ even appointed a county employee the jury foreperson who lives in the small town of Portville New York, the same location of the Assistant District Attorney is from to ensure guilty verdict. You haven’t seen a rigged jury until you sit in on a trial in Cattaraugus County New York…. Judge Claims it’s a Conspiracy and he doesn’t swear in the jury! This is all on the certified public record folks, and then some….
In New York State, considered one of the most corrupt states in the county, if any citizen who is working for change exposes any aspect of a completely corrupt political system they maybe forced to undergo what is called a 730.30 examination, which can lead to the citizen being chemically lobotomized by a completely corrupt state government financed mental health system. In this report we will show you how one individual was forced to undergo two examinations by individuals who a county community service director, the individual in control of county mental heath system failed and/or refused to provide proof they were even qualified to conduct the exams… Continue reading
