In the never ending Cattaraugus County saga of absolute criminal madness, District Attorney Lori Rieman takes minor traffic violations to a sitting Cattaraugus County Grand Jury. There is no provision in law whatsoever to take violations to a Grand Jury. But this is Cattaraugus County where Justice goes to die. The only problem is it is already dead and there are Psychopaths at the helm who are running around like a immature group of high school teenagers using the “authority” of the District Attorney’s office to carry out personal vendettas under the color of law.

Stahlman FOUND INNOCENT ON ALL CHARGES. In a case that was based on a illusory DA’s tale full of official government corruption, the final results are in; The Jury found Mr. Stahlman innocent of all charges provided. This if further proof it never should have gone to the Grand Jury in the first place, which provides more evidence that there is a deeply embedded pattern and practice, ranging across numerous years, by the “district attorney’s” office, that they engage in fraud upon the Grand Jury by the using our Grand Jury system to upgrade charges when they knew, or should have known the evidence does NOT support. This will lead to another lawsuit against the County, the District Attorney’s Office, the City of Salamanca and the individual officers involved which never should have happened if they did their jobs fairly and honestly. We the taxpayers will flip the bill for it AGAIN… This latest travesty of justice also led to the kidnapping of observer in the public gallery during this trial, and the kidnapping was based on the criminal conduct of another Cattaraugus County “ADA”, one William Preston Marshall, who himself is the cause of a FOUR MILLION DOLLAR LAWSUIT AGAINST THE COUNTY It led to the loss of more of our rights by rouge elements of the Cattaraugus County government and the short fight to get them restored… Continue reading
In New York State if you even think of exercising your rights, your life, family and friends will be put in jeopardy and terrorized by the criminal cabal who have taken over parts of the state government. We will give you just one example, it’s called “Sua Sponte” and it is one of the most important matters that all court in the US exercise when the issue is raised, and one of the easiest methods for identifying a criminally corrupt judge, especially here in the Southern Tier of Western New York, where oppression and crimes against humanity rules the roost. Is it any wonder why in raw numbers and by percentage of the population, the United States has the most prisoners of any developed country in the world? Continue reading
When the Rights of One American are Violated, the Rights of All Americans are Violated, Including Yours
Long before the Ferguson situation occurred, another young man named Michael B. was shot and killed by a police officer. His father’s relentless activism led to changes in the law surrounding how police-involved death cases are investigated in Wisconsin. We need the same here in New York, including no DA’s allowed!
Ten years ago, 21-year-old Michael Bell Jr. pulled up to the house where he lived with his mom and sister in Kenosha, Wis., about an hour south of Milwaukee. A police officer who, according to a police report chose to follow Bell after observing his driving, arrived shortly after. A subsequent toxicology report showed that Bell had been drinking that night. Continue reading
With all the focus on corrupt police murdering citizens, like our fellow New Yorker Eric Garner, who was allegedly selling single cigarettes, at $0.50 CENTS A PIECE! and Grand Jury’s appearing to do nothing about it, we need to take the time to look at what a Grand Jury is supposed to be, versus what it is today.
Strange how this website came out espousing the importance of Grand Jury’s and within months the hegelian dialectic kicks in at full force.
This excellent New York Times article describes how those accused of a ‘crime’, who believe they have done no wrong, can go before the grand jury to plea there case and a good percentage gets ‘no-billed’ meaning the grand jury, after hearing their statements refuse to hand down an indictment, i.e. not charge them.
Here is just two quotes;
“Sara Sun Beale, a national expert on grand jury issues at Duke University School of Law, said the indications that more suspects are testifying and that many of them are not indicted may mean that the New York grand jury system should become a national mode….”
“Lawyers say the 1978 change in the law permitting defense lawyers in the grand jury room prompted them to begin encouraging some clients to testify. Other changes accelerated the trend, including new selection methods that broadened the pool of potential jurors, and what some lawyers say is an increasing willingness by grand jurors to question official accounts of crimes.”
This shows you the power of New York’s Grand Jury System. Click here to read the entire article. Caveat: There is no telling when, or if this article will be moved, removed, etc…. so you may want to save one for yourself. Click here to read the article.
Important Notice to individuals who are being ‘investigated/indicted’ by the DA/grand jury;
CPL 190.50(5)(a) provides that the District Attorney must notify the defendant or his or her attorney of a pending Grand Jury proceeding in such manner as to afford the defendant reasonable time to exercise his or her right to appear as a witness therein.
If the prosecutor does not provide notice of grand jury presentation when s/he is required to, this is a denial of your due process rights. Defendants can then file a “five day motion” to properly challenge the failure, and throw out the indictment and give you the chance to be heard before the grand jury, so they can hear your side of the story and call your witnesses before they render their decision.
Further a ‘five day’ motion it is not considered a “pretrial motion” (see CPL §§ 210.35 , 255.10), and therefore the timing is not governed by the forty-five day period specified in CPL § 255.20. This motion must be made within five days after arraignment or it is waived (see CPL § 190.50[5(c)]). See also Commentary, N.Y. Crim. Proc. Law § 190.50 (McKinney).
