Seneca County District Attorney Barry Porsch announced that on July 7, 2014, a nine-count indictment against Waterloo Acting Village Justice Roger Barto was unsealed in the Seneca County Court where Barto was arraigned on the charges, entered a not guilty plea, and was released on his own recognizance. The County Court scheduled the matter for a conference on August 11.

The indictment alleges that Barto falsely reported an incident to law enforcement on August 31, 2013 while at the Waterloo Village Court and thereafter up to June 2014 fraudulently collected benefits. The indictment also alleges that Barto stole gasoline from the Village of Waterloo on April 3, 2014.

The indictment charged Barto with grand larceny in the third degree (class D felony), corrupting the government in the fourth degree (class E felony), insurance fraud in the third degree (class D felony), falsifying business records in the first degree (class E felony), defrauding the government (class E felony), falsely reporting an incident in the third degree (class A misdemeanor), two counts of official misconduct (class A misdemeanor), and petit larceny (class A misdemeanor).

The indictment resulted from a joint investigation conducted by the Waterloo Police Department, New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation – Troop E, Seneca County District Attorney’s Office, Seneca County Sheriff’s Department, N.Y.S. Workers’ Compensation Board’s Office of Fraud Inspector General, N.Y.S. Department of Financial Services’ Insurance Frauds Bureau, and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The indictment is merely an accusation and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
