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…
Bill Bastuk, another victim of a corrupt District Attorney in New York State lost over $160,000.00, he and his wife’s life savings over bogus charges. He is one gentle soul, a very nice charming man who did not deserve what they did to him.
He has founded the it could happen to you foundation (itcouldhappen2you.org) and is spearheading a bill in the legislator to create a committee specifically for District Attorney and Assistant District Attorney misconduct. The bill is gathering wide support. It is Senate Bill 2412A and Assembly Bill A05285.
The purpose of this legislation is to create the commission on prosecutor conduct, to serve as a disciplinary entity designated to review complaints of prosecutor misconduct in New York State, to enforce the obligation of prosecutors to observe acceptable standards of conduct, and to establish reasonable accountability for the conduct of prosecutors during the performance of their functions, powers and duties as prosecutors. The commission on prosecutorial conduct is modeled after legislation that established the state commission on judicial conduct.
Call your Representatives NOW and demand they support Senate Bill 2412A and Assembly Bill A05285!
