Cattaraugus County, New York, District Attorney Lori Rieman is being considered to have her name submitted to the Guinness World Book of Records as the most corrupt District Attorney in the history of the United States.
Cattaraugus County, New York, District Attorney Lori Rieman appears to be the first District Attorney in the history of the United States to indict a person WITHOUT a grand jury handing down an indictment (also called a true bill) against said person.
Yes, that’s right, in Cattaraugus County, New York, you can be indicted without a grand jury ever being empaneled. After all, if her office can’t find a law to destroy one of their victims, they just make it up as they go. They have already made up laws and fabricated evidence in one matter.
Twilight Zone, the next John Grisham novel?
§6. No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime (except in cases of impeachment, and in cases of militia when in actual service, and the land, air and naval forces in time of war, or which this state may keep with the consent of congress in time of peace, and in cases of petit larceny under the regulation of the legislature), unless on indictment of a grand jury, except that a person held for the action of a grand jury upon a charge for such an offense, other than one punishable by death or life imprisonment, with the consent of the district attorney, may waive indictment by a grand jury and consent to be prosecuted on an information filed by the district attorney; such waiver shall be evidenced by written instrument signed by the defendant in open court in the presence of his or her counsel.
You can’t be indicted if there is no Grand Jury. PERIOD, except in Cattaraugus County, New York, where corruption and illusion reins supreme.
In an ongoing case Rieman claims that a Grand Jury has been empaneled against one of her victims when in fact none was and even the County Court affirmed the fact that there was no Grand Jury.
In the latest criminal activity, District Attorney Lori Pettit Rieman claims she can indict a person without a grand jury even being empaneled, let alone passing down an indictment.
The image to the left is a transcript concerns the latest court case involving CSquared, a pro-se, one of Rieman’s latest victims who was falsely accused of crimes he did not commit. Notice the term “indictment” in the caption?
Here is the problem, in the same transcript, the court itself admits there was no Grand Jury proceedings AT ALL. The Judge of the Cattaraugus County Court even stated it as fact!
The criminal who filed the false claims against him, (Matthew Albanese) had committed perjury in at least three occasions in the matter as well as witnessed an assault upon CSquared, by one Bryan H Schwabenbauer, an individual who has been sued in federal court for similar actions and perjury. CSquared is exposing the corruption in Cattaraugus County and was, and is standing up for New York State citizens rights in Cattaraugus County, New York.
Criminals are as criminals do, in Cattaraugus County they are district attorney’s and other ‘public officials’ too…
in the matter of CSquared v. The People, Lori the criminal Rieman claims that she indicted CSquared without a Grand Jury Presentment. Not only is this another complete fabrication on Riemans part, her actions are not even allowed by law that is clearly spelled out in the law. You can’t indict a individual without a grand jury being empaneled and passing down a ‘true bill’.
Lets look at;
N.Y. CPL. LAW § 210.35 A grand jury proceeding is defective within the meaning of paragraph (c) of subdivision one of section 210.20 when: 1. The grand jury was illegally constituted; or 2. The proceeding is conducted before fewer than sixteen grand jurors; or 3. Fewer than twelve grand jurors concur in the finding of the indictment; or 4. The defendant is not accorded an opportunity to appear and testify before the grand jury in accordance with the provisions of section 190.50; or 5. The proceeding otherwise fails to conform to the requirements of article one hundred ninety to such degree that the integrity thereof is impaired and prejudice to the defendant may result.
Well, what is Article 190?
The power of grand juries to inquire into the wilful misconduct in office of public officers, and to find indictments or to direct the filing of informations in connection with such inquiries, shall never be suspended or impaired by law. No person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law. (Amended by Constitutional Convention of 1938 and approved by vote of the people November 8, 1938; further amended by vote of the people November 8, 1949; November 3, 1959; November 6, 1973; November 6, 2001.)
Gee… what does CPL § 190.80 say? Ohhhh….
It states that a defendant is required to be released “on the basis of a felony complaint”, in other words a grand jury cannot even be formed unless a ‘defendant’ was charged with a “felony complaint”
None of CSquare’s charges were felonies…, IN OTHER WORDS, THERE COULD NOT BE A GRAND JURY EMPANELED, UNLESS…. (that subject of another article that allows a defendant to demand one, and only the defendant.. and why would a defendant do that when the grand Jury is controlled by the District Attorney?, the very criminal being exposed in this matter… )
