Cop suing state after being forced to alter police report on daughter of judge who offered him sex to let her go freeBy Mason White 8:20 AM January 9, 2018
A state trooper has filed a lawsuit after he was awoken and forced to return to the police department to alter a report.
The incident began when State Trooper Ryan Sceviour of Massachusetts pulled over a car for suspected drunk driving.
The driver, Alli Bibaud, allegedly failed field sobriety tests and according to the lawsuit, the driver indicated she had a heroin addiction.
In the police report, Sceviour quoted the woman as saying: “My father is a judge, he is going to kill me.”
He also wrote that the woman said she performs sex acts on men in exchange for heroin and offered him a sexual favor in exchange for leniency.
However, three days later, he was awoken by another officer and ordered to return to the station to alter the report.
Sceviour said that he was ordered to remove certain statements the Bibaud made at the time of her arrest, including references to her father being a judge.
Sceviour was also disciplined over the report. The state trooper was told the information he provided in the report “was not relevant to the Bibaud’s arrest.”
So far, there is no evidence that Bibaud’s father, Judge Timothy M. Bibaud, had anything to do with the altered report.
Ironically, judge Bibaud sits in the drug court at the Dudley District Court.
When Sceviour and the public learned that Col. Richard McKeon, 61, was behind the order to alter the report to protect and avoid embarrassing the judge, McKeon resigned.
In his resignation letter, Mckeon wrote: “I have today decided that putting the greater good of the Massachusetts state police first necessitates my decision to retire after 35 years of proud service.”
In his defense, Mckeon said that he was just trying to treat a victim of opioid addiction with sensitivity and respect.
“Our first duty is to enforce the law and protect the public, but that doesn’t preclude us from being empathetic toward those in need,” he said.
