Now evidence has emerged that the grand jury presentment may… Continue reading
Cattaraugus County DA Lori Rieman makes the news again. “the sheriff is up for re-election and it would possibly (I doubt it though) affect that.”‘ Further proof she is unfit to hold the office of Cattaraugus County DA as are most of the people in her office just like one lawsuit stated… “Special prosecutor Lori Pettit Rieman knew in October she would not place charges against any Erie County jail deputy in the death of inmate Richard A. Metcalf Jr. but withheld announcing the decision until weeks after the November election.
“In an Oct. 11 email to two State Police investigators, written after a phone call from a Buffalo News reporter, Reiman said she had made up her mind that it was not criminally prosecutable. “Apparently,” Reiman wrote, “the sheriff is up for re-election and it would possibly (I doubt it though) affect that.” Rieman added: “I told him that prosecuting crimes is not a political event in my county.”
She then waited two months to announce her decision publicly. In the nine weeks between her email and her announcement, Election Day passed. So did the statute of limitations on the two most likely criminal charges the deputies could have faced.” To read the full Buffalo News article here…
Further proof she is not fit to hold the office of District Attorney.
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.

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…
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
