Cattaraugus County DA Lori Rieman lets the time run out on manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide against Matthew Cross, a cop who murdered an inmate by strangling him. Cross was hired after this murder by the Ellicottville Police Department. Further there were three suicides within a six month time frame in the Cattaraugus County Jail that do not appear to have been investigated in any manner what-so-ever;
“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.

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….
We have a fellow citizen, Stephen Schindlbeck, who lost his life at the hands of our public servants. He was going to be charged with a two felonies yet he had harmed no one, unlike Catherine Ensell who is a very violent individual and her daddy John always covers up for her. This alleged suicide occurred in the Olean Jail. Do we remember the three suicides in the Cattaraugus County Jail that took place in a period of six months in 2014 and not a word about what became of it? And what about the Metcalf murder investigation that ‘DA’ Lori Rieman is in ‘charge’ of? There are some very concerning twists in the recent ‘suicide’ in the Olean Jail… Continue reading
Kochan Trial Update – Special Prosecutors and Recusal Motions. In the early stages of the action that was illegally moved to the Cattaraugus County Court, Mr. Kochan, acting pro-se, motioned for a special prosecutor to replace District Attorney Lori Rieman and her cohorts. If a Motion for a Special Prosecutor is granted, that person replacing her has all the rights and authorities as the District Attorney, which includes moving forward with the case, dropping the charges or reducing them; “it is the duty of the district attorney to refrain from over-zealous advocacy” ( People v. Slover, 232 N.Y. 264, 267)… Continue reading
When you become a victim of Cattaraugus County District Attorney Lori Rieman she will use any and all methods at her disposal, illegal or otherwise, to get a conviction. In the Kochan trial she is using visual symbolism in the court room to plant in the minds of the jury, i.e. taint the jury, that Mr. Kochan is someone who has the potential to physically attack others in the court room, or had done so in the past. This can have has serious prejudicial effect on Mr. Kochan at the trial…
Cattaraugus County Judge Ronald Ploetz violating his oath of office again, or was it someone who showed up in the audience that caused him to go against Mr. Kochan’s Marinida rights? In the trial of Christopher Kochan, where the original three charges were superseded one day later by three of the same charges thereby rendering them invalid and eliminating the District Attorney’s ability to prosecute; “It is well settled that a simplified traffic information can only be amended to cure amendable defects and cannot be superseded by another” People v Tate 45 Misc 3d 131(A)). When Mr. Kochan called them out on that they then attempted to use a fraudulent Notice of Presentment. In order to take a matter to the grand jury that is not a Felony (Felony’s are automatic), you need at least one misdemeanor charge. In this matter there was only one misdemeanor charge listed on the Notice of Presentment, which Mr. Kochan was never charged with. So the DA could not use that process either. Continue reading
