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.

Ploetz’s Oct 22, 2016 Orders Admitting Tickets were superseded along with proof the tickets were simplified traffic informations.
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 In the trial of Christopher Kochan, where the original three charges were superseded one day later by three of the same charges thereby rendering them invalid and eliminating the District Attorney’s ability to prosecute; “It is well settled that asimplified traffic information can only be amended to cure amendable defects and cannot be superseded by another”People v Tate 45 Misc 3d 131(A)).

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 →
