Innocent Man Spends Four Months In Jail After Rochester, NY Police Officers Lie Under Oath

By Davy V., CopBlock

Imagine for a moment, driving in your car, down the street, and coming to a stop sign. Then, as you proceed, you are pulled over by police officers.

When you ask them why they stopped you, they reply that you failed to come to a complete stop.

But you did.

You know you did.

And you know they are lying.

That’s exactly what happened to Rochester, NY resident Jeramie Barideaux in July of 2011, on the corner of Conkey Avenue and Avenue D, after he came to a complete stop.


Rochester, NY Police officers Rob Osipovitch and Ryan Hartley, falsely accused Mr. Barideaux of failing to come to a complete stop in order to have a reason to pull him over.

But thanks to the power of video, Osipovitch and Hartley never stopped to think that City of Rochester traffic cameras were recording the whole incident.

And that the video recorded their lie.

After the illegal stop and search of Mr. Barideaux’s vehicle, the Rochester Police Department claims that the officers found drugs and a weapon.

After spending four months in jail, Monroe County Court Judge Daniel Doyle dismissed all charges against Barideaux.

In his decision to dismiss the charges, Judge Doyle said “it was an unreasonable stop… based on the review of the video, there’s no ambiguity at all that a car being operated by Jeramie Barideaux did come to a complete stop before the police stopped the vehicle.”

On Thursday July 19, 2012 a lawsuit was filed in the Monroe County Clerk’s office.

The lawsuit names the City of Rochester,NY, the Rochester, NY Police Department and officer Rob Osipovitch and officer Ryan Hartley as defendants.

The lawsuit says Rochester Police officers Osipovitch and Hartley “lied in their sworn police reports” and “upon belief, the Defendant police officers committed perjury concerning the stop of Plaintiff’s vehicle in front of a Monroe County Grand Jury.”

This is yet another black eye on the face of the Rochester, NY Police Department and their long history of misconduct and corruption.

A police department which just recently, in a clear act of desperation to buy the trust and respect of the community, launched a billboard campaign with the slogans “We have Your Back” and “On The Same Team.”

The billboards, which were specifically targeted at minorities, featured actual Latino and African-American Rochester Police officers.

Ironically, the Rochester, NY Police Department has a long history of betraying, abusing, harassing, racially profiling and in some cases even killing innocent African-Americans and Latinos.

Recently, the Rochester, NY Police Department came under heavy criticism when 7 RPD officers executed 20 year old Israel “Izzy” Andino, a mentally-ill young man.

And just a couple of weeks ago, Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard along with Rochester Mayor Thomas Richards announced project “Cool Down” in which Sheppard stated that his officers will pull over citizens for not having a bell or a light on their bicycles!

Which is why I am not surprised that Rochester Police officers Rob Osipovitch and Ryan Hartley lied in order to pull over Mr. Barideaux.

This happens in Rochester, NY on a daily basis.

The only difference is that this time, a video camera high up on that intersection, recorded everything.

And now, thanks to the power of video, video recorded on a City of Rochester camera, the City of Rochester will have to pay Mr. Barideaux for each day he spent in jail, as a result of two lying Rochester Police officers.

As for Rochester Police officers Rob Osipovitch and Ryan Hartley? They’re still patrolling Rochester streets.

I wonder how many times they have lied, framed and set up innocent people.

20934 Jeramie now has an arrest record which any future employer will see when they do a background search..

They don't care if Jeramie was actually convicted of any crime. The arrest puts him onto the electronic slave plantation forever.

68154 Its no way these police officers should still be working, they should lose their pension, and jobs. Others should be fired for letting them back on the job.

2463 These cops have shown beyond all doubt that they cannot be trusted. The fact that they still roam the streets with weapons is terrifying.

the war on police continues....

cops are paid to lie. laws are lies, that you've been tricked into believing you're subject to.

here's a high-light.... yesterday, i watched an officer arrest a homeless man. the man was under the influence of some-sort of mind altering substance; he'd wandered out into the middle of an intersection, and had stopped a 60's model lemans in its tracks. (that car would have been my choice too), but that wasn't the high-light.

the officer who had come to intervene, didn't draw his weapon nor did he grab his baton. he carefully took the man's wrist behind his back (the man threw himself to the ground), and the officer simply put the other wrist in the cuff. when the officer stood the man upright, he dusted him, and took great care while placing him into the police car.

after the ordeal, my 5 year old said: "that scared me. i thought the cop was going to hurt him." my response: "yes, so did i."

i'm not suggesting that the homeless man wasn't treated unfairly, after he'd been taken from public view. the part that stood out for me was, the officer was able to exercise a level of restraint, that i've never seen before. in other words...they've modified police programming.

6464 Something is either a stop or it's not. The only kind of stop there could be is a complete one. There's no such thing as an incomplete stop.

76179 Hate to nitpick, but this sentence from the article makes no sense: " But thanks to the power of video, Osipovitch and Hartley never stopped to think that City of Rochester traffic cameras were recording the whole incident."

The sentence is saying, "Because we have video cameras, the cops forgot they might be recorded."

On another note, those cops need to be sent to jail for at least as long as Barideaux was in there, and they need to lose their jobs, and never be able to work in the public sector again. I hate dirty cops.

98209 The cops need to obey the law they are hired ,by the citizens to up hold. The thinking that you are either a cop or bad guy needs to go.

9660 LEOs for the most part used to be the Good Guys.
All to often now, they shoud be given psych evals
before being allowed to carry a weapon. The badge
makes them safe abd the gun gives them power.

Any cop will be proud to tell you that they don't know law. That's not their job.

216160 one of the commandments demands we not bear false witness against a "naighbour", that is, anyone near us. What does that mean? Don't lie about someone else that he is harmed in any way.. suffers loss of his good name, libetrty, property, time....

the punishment, under the Law of Moses, was that the liar, on whose testimony another is harmed, will suffer the same loss his false witness brought upon the other. In this case, the two cops lied.. causing the victom to be arrested, spending four months in jail, loss of liberty, probably lost income, and certainly loss of his good name. These cops should be forced to pay esactly what they cost their victim... including the time in jail the loss of an equal amount of THEIR OWN INCOME, and their own names so tarnished they can't find work for some time.

ONLY when LEO are dropped off their pedestal and treated in a manner equal to that of we "ordinary folk" will this sort of abuse stop. And the time to begin that process is long past. Police unions coddling and protecting "their own" at the epense of the public are tantamount to treason. I hope this lawsuit hurts the City (for being careless enough to keep such filth on their payroll) and the two cops as individuals. Their government issued costume, tin plate, and weapon are NOT sufficient insulation from their own illegal activity.

208125 I applaud the officers for removing the trash from the streets for as long as they did. Its a sad day when someone guilty of having drugs and was it weapons? in their car gets to go free just because of the way they were obtained. Now the officers are being sued but its to be expected form the city trash.

17426 I have had a few NED's. Many people also have had them.
They have also said what I will tell you.
It is lies, that put people in hell. This is the truth.
The worst sin-is to lie.
The police all end up in Hell.
Most of the people you admire and worship, like medical doctors, lie all the time.
They lie in order to steal, they lie in order to harm people,
evil people always lie-the make a lie-so they can get away with the evil they do-thinking they won't be punished if the lie covers their evil deeds.
Lies are never unpunished and Hell is very real.
I was never baptized-I have never gone to church ot been taught any religion-but I have died and returned,
everything you do is judged-but the lie-is the worst.
People lie-to cover their sins-to get away with sin-it is the very opposite of repenting of your sins-admiting your sins-confessing your evil, and regretting it.
Lies- also make those who lie even more stupid.

6676 As a former resident, I can tell you that Rochester, NY is a tiny shit hole city overflowing with entrenched corruption. However, what the article doesn't tell you is that Avenue D is 'the hood' and Conkey and Avenue D is a place where one can buy drugs (which I feel should be legal). Maybe the guy bought a dime, and just wanted to smoke a bowl after observing the fucked up world we live in.
