“Victim” Forced To Pay For Towing, Storage Costs

Let’s give the Erie County Prosecutor’s Victim’s Assistance clan a big round of applause!

• The Erie County Prosecutor’s office managed to obtain an indictment on Dr. Elsebeth Baumgartner for “Grand Theft Auto” without ever contacting who they thought was the rightful owner of the vehicle. (Who ended up being the complaining witness?)
• After indicting her they let the alleged “stolen vehicle” sit in impound for 20 days – even after the alleged victim requested that the vehicle be released.
• The Erie County Prosecutor’s office made the “owner” pay for the towing and storage fees (over $400) on a vehicle they claim was stolen.
• The “special prosecutor” requested a $150,000 bond on Baumgartner but was denied the request.
Nooooo! There’s no ulterior motive here!

I don’t think a bad faith, malicious prosecution could get any worse…

You know it’s a political prosecution when the prosecutor clutches at straws to convince that a crime was even committed.
