Why Did Judge’s Daughter Case Originate in Worcester Court? Court Officials Won’t Say

The case of Ali Bibaud started out in a Worcester court, where a judge ordered a Massachusetts State Police report redacted — even though Bibaud is the daughter of a Dudley District Court judge who spent 20 years as a prosecutor in the Worcester District Attorney’s office.

The Worcester judge eventually ordered the case transferred to Framingham District Court, which is in Middlesex County and therefore not connected to the Worcester District Attorney’s office.

But the Worcester Telegram & Gazette wants to know why the case was heard at all in a Worcester court instead of being transferred immediately. “The trial court has not responded on the record,” the story states.

Bibaud told a state trooper who arrested her in October 2017 that she got heroin by performing sex acts and offered sex acts to him in exchange for leniency, according to the trooper, who was later ordered to take the explosive details out of his police report and was reprimanded for putting them in.

The trooper, Ryan Sceviour, has since sued State Police brass (at the time) and other high law enforcement officials.
