Some months ago, The NY State Attorney General's office handed down a finding to the Essex County Clerk that Richard Meyer, then Essex County Attorney, had committed a "crime but not a high crime, so Essex County has to prosecute him". A High Crime includes actions for which a person is paid for his misbehavior.(salaries not included)At the Time, the AG was Eliot Spitzer. The Essex County District Attorney was Ron Briggs and he was running against meyers for Family Court Judge. He declared that he would be accused of "electioneering" if he prosecuted Meyers. The evidence included officers of the Court, video tapes and recorded court proceedings and documents. The action included misdirecting Betty Little's office and other ADA's during their investigation of allegations against him.
Much more could be said but it would be hard to believe it isn't fiction. Many children suffered under his actions. Has anyone else have this experience with him.

Pure and simple "police protection". He is bought and paid for with political payoff's.
As an example, when I asked for people to come forward with specifics so that a particular town supervisor could use them to have him removed, the state police contacted me and indicated that Richard Meyers had requested that I be arrested for " assault" charges. When I offered to present myself for arrest as long as I could produce the documents I had to prove my complaints and then ask that he be charged with false arrest, I was told that I could forget about being arrested and about ever having the State Police act on my request that "he" be arrested for criminal filing of false documents!
As far as committee's on ethical behavior, believe it or not, after sending in 12 pages of specifics on my charges about Richard Meyer's and the Corrupt Judge from Platsburgh, I received a letter from them dropping their investigation because they had concluded that it was moot because the "judge was deceased"!!!! I wrote a letter to each commissioner and asked how they could sleep nights allowing such a fraud and none of them replied. He is still very much alive!
On a given day when I asked another judge to have Richard Meyer's charged and arrested by federal marshals for what I had provided incontrovertible proof for, I was told to go to the Westport trooper barracks and ask them to send the trooper who was the direct witness back to verify my claim. I walked in and asked politely. They drew the straps off their pistols and told me to leave or I would be in trouble.
Meyer's is not all powerful alone, he has state police protection!

Maybe you should:

1) WRITE A BOOK, or set up a website or blog to TELL YOUR STORY;

2) Get a lawyer, to protect yourself.

Consider an alarm/surveillance system for your home??

it's horrible.A family court judge should be listening to all sides and reviewing evidence in which he refuses to except.It seems he rules for the other parents who don't care about their childrens well being.

I am not sure what kind of backing he is getting from the State Police, but one thing I know for sure is he must be getting a cut from St Joes Rehab, he sends everyone there... And everyone that gets evaluated needs to continue with 175 sessions 2x a week... Even if they are clean! Been there done that...

After I asked for people to come forward to help take Meyer's out of office, I was called by the State Troopers and was told that Judge Meyer's wanted me arrested for "Aggravated assault". Seems that allegedly, taking him out of office can be misconstrued as a death threat.
Meyer's informed an ADA that she should not investigate my report that a level 3 sex offender taking classes at St Joes Rehab molested my children because I was "delusional" because the children were "never" alone with the pedophile who was also taking the same classes. He signed the order placing them there after I screamed at him in Court not to place my children with "a pedophile". I sent a copy of his signature on the order to Betty Littles office to prove my point.

The new DA, the same one who should of known not to ask for my arrest, stated that Richard Meyer had not committed a crime because I had gotten the ADA to finally investigate the matter. So, NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED!!! If most of us misdirect authorities, we go to jail just for trying!

If a Judge were to falsely claim that you were a dangerous person and he sent armed men to arrest you, would you be a bit concerned that they might shoot first and ask questions later to protect the Judge? The Press Republican has all the details. I had to threaten to throw a chair at a Judge unless I got my children away from Meyer's control and the PR would then have a news worthy reason to print all those details. I have my children as a result, should anyone ever have to threaten violence to free children from a situation where they become suicidal because of actions like Meyer's?

It shouldn't matter if he is a judge if he is putting childrens lives in danger and not listening to the lawyers,agencies etc..and snubbing his nose at the laws and doing what he wants ,someone should be monitoring his court cases to catch him.Or the lawyers should be making complaints against him and the state agencies.

He is a wothless judge in my opinion also. He doesn't listen to anyone he does what he wants and there are amny to back him up. He also does alot af damage to adults too. There was a case involving a man who was on trial and there were two people the D.A. put on the stand and neither one of the people testifying could point out wich one was the defendant or the laywer. I was there and saw this for real he prosectuted the defendant while there were no witnesses.

I am not speaking for myself but for a very good friend this very good friend is sick she has a few children and they all have different fathers well the mother has been in front of judge meyers on 2 different occassions and both times he should of been charged for disclosing her illness in a public room. It is a CONFIDENTIAL illness and he felt it had been a problem well how come for 13 yrs she has raised 3 beautiful girls and because of her illness and what she uses for medication that they belong in better homes remember she herself has raised them not there dead beat crackheaded fathers who know get to destroy the kids because they cant be with her when they are sick or just not feeling well but iun the dads eyes they are just figures for income tax time good job Judge Meyers keep giving these dead beat dads who have no interest ever the opportunity to be a dad its an impossible task to be a dad when youve never tried to be a dad. Follow a few court proceedings with him you will be amazed at who leaves the winner guaranteed its not the outcome you expected.
