I know from personal experience he is a liar, a thief, a rapist, and a racist! he stole 117 dollars from me in a civil suit that was dropped 9 years before. he made me under a threat of a 500 dollar fine and 30 days in jail 2 pay for this phone that was never broken. the girl he had sex with ( my sons mother) got on sum revenge binge and went 2 c Cioppa and next thing u know im being served with all kinds of summons. having no clue what it was about I go see this fool and he's poppin off @ me like a madman! he chained me too a bench in the back of the court room for 7 hours telling me im going to jail that day, when the cop comes and releases me he tell me I better have this money next time....Well needless 2 say what a joke and how crooked this so called judge is I never went back...so 9 years later im in front of him again about more lies from my sons mother. which by the way is certified mildly retarded, she says nothing about this phone from 9 years ago. Cioppa couldnt even find a reason too punish me this time so he pulls out this citation from 9 years ago.( which the statue of limitations for a civil case was expired 5 7 years before) and begins 2 demand I pay for the phone. So I play him off and he keeps sending me these summons for this money. so I take this thief the money which was legally my son's mother as he ordered me 2 after threat after threat. I take the money in @ my 9 a.m hearing and give this fool a 117 dollar check and by 11 a.m the checked was cashed but my sons mother never got the money. this was 3 years ago. does it take that long 2 process a payment to a complaintant? NO! ROSS CIOPPA stole my money. He also had sex with my sons mother just 2 fck with me. This man needs prison time. Oh and my sons mother is a light skinned afro-american, Ross;s favorite! We all know this, I have all the papers, fake police report with no name on it. since when do police make out reports with no officers name on it. where it came form or when it was written up. thats right they dont do it like that. FBI needs 2 talk 2 me also. those 2 women that came forward are not the only ones he rapped. officially oppressed and out right violated our rights. I've been saying too def ears ( including the Rankin Chief Wooten) that this man (Cioppa) was breaking the law in a major way, just from what hes done 2 me he should be held accountable! I know i'm just a black man in a racist Common Wealth State but im a human being! Thats what Chief Wooten told me, theres nothing I can do its a Common Wealth State. Thanks for doing your job 2 the best of Ur ability Chief Wooten (Uncle Tom) I guess when U got busted with Lance White with all that weed in rankin and Lance took the fall and U took the deal and ended up Chief of Rankin Police U said fck Ur people. Huh? Tell U what Wooten why dont U go bust Ur farther for the illegal numbers he runs, or the illegal car garage he runs? oh no we wont do that! U run round talkin bout Ur a crime fighter but U let Ur people do what they want even though it's a crime.( felonies) huh? Put ur cape on and go arrest Ur dad! Law is the law and no ones above it. unless ur related 2 one of the crooked cops in n. bradd. bradd, swissvale, rankin or braddock hills. WOOTEN!

What is the over/under on the total number of victims that come forward against that narcissist in the end? Will his defense team( which includes the notorious scumbag attorney James Ecker) be able to keep his old corrupt perverted ass out of the slammer? It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Cioppa will never go to trial. He'll plead out with no jail time and get probation is my guess. He's a scum bag and all though Maddlion sounds a little crazy to some, I have a strong feeling he's not crazy or lying.

Cioppa is as corrupt as you can get and has gotten away with it for a very long time.

I would love to see him jailed and lose his pension but he's connected to the right people and will get off lightly.

It was reported several months back that there were supposed to be even more victims coming forward against Ross (more potential charges) after he was "removed" from his magesterial seat, so hopefully the DA's office has been continuing their investigation ever since. I just hope that the crooked, narcissistic bastard gets what he deserves, not a slap on the wrist that would just prove that even more corruption has taken place! The latter would be sickening if that's how this all plays out.

I have known Ross my entire life. NONE of these charges surprise me in the least. Ross has ALWAYS been a hound and has cheated on his wife throughout their marriage. Shocked that he was ever able to become a judge considering he has no law experience. i guess political connections do help! Needless to say, lets all hope Ross gets what he deserves. 82K/yr!

There were supposed to be more victims coming forward after that crooked bastard was removed from his seat, well, it is March the 28th and there hasn't been any news of any additional victims coming forward since his removal several months back, why is that? Ross's perverted, self serving use of his old magisterial seat while he was in power was simply despicable, if he gets away with those crimes, it will be downright disturbing! Will The Allegheny County DA's office do what's right or will they play a part in even more corruption taking place?

To refresh your memories, I have provided a link to an article that came out in October of '11.

BTW, according to the Allegheny County DA's website, Ross's non-jury trial is scheduled to start tomorrow, April the 12th.

Several things stick out in the article that I've linked in my post above:

First, whatever happened to the investigation into "another 20 odd situations in which similar allegations have been raised against Judge Cioppa"?
Second, whatever became of the investigation into "the possibility that Judge Cioppa manipulated court records to reflect different outcomes than those reached in his courtroom."

According to Ross's docket sheet ( you can access this on the Allegheny County DA's website), only charges from the original two victims are being brought against him in this trial. Didn't any of those other allegations merit additional charges ( I find that impossible to believe) or are they still investigating those allegations for a possible separate trial?

Unbelievable,so all he got was a slap on the hand with 6 months house arrest and probation. All I can say is when elections for the judges come around remember to vote these corrupt people out.
The good ol boy buddy system has got to stop.

Common Pleas Judge Jill Rangos sentenced Cioppa to four years of probation, starting with six months of house arrest.
Assistant District Attorney William Becker dropped two felony bribery charges letting Cioppa plead guilty to two counts of indecent assault and two counts of official oppression, all misdemeanors.

Assistant District Attorney William Becker read a statement from one of the victims "The incident that occurred has made my life a living hell," the statement read. "I feel helpless in the community."

Cioppa's lawyer Phil DiLucente said after the hearing that his client did not receive a special deal.

BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!

It's truly disturbing to see how well connected that narcissistic prick really must be! No prison time whatsoever for what he put those two ladies through, it's nauseating to say the very least! Whatever happened to those twenty or so other potential victims that were being looked into last fall? Whatever happened to the investigation into his possible tampering of court records? That stuff just conveniently disappeared, it's been swept under the rug and will probably never surface again, it's absolutely vile !!

The reason why is he has a lot of shit on other VIP politicians and could reveal such. He was cut a deal to keep his mouth shut.
Same reason you won't see or hear anymore of his mis dealings while he was in office. There were allegations about tampering of court records etc.

You won't hear anymore about anything. The slime ball he is he was smart enough to have things on some other powerful politicians.

You can't only blame him, take a good hard look at the DA ... He's bought and paid for more than anyone wants to think.
