Second State Trooper Says She Was Forced to Alter Arrest Documents of Judge’s Daughter
Ali Rei, a drug specialist, says Massachusetts State Police leaders told her to remove embarrassing details regarding Alli Bibaud's arrest.
A second Massachusetts police officer claims she was ordered to alter details surrounding the arrest of a judge’s daughter.
Trooper Ali Rei, a drug recognition expert, says that she, too, was told to tamper with documents related to Alli Bibaud, who was arrested in mid-October, WCVB reports. Bibaud, whose father Timothy Bibaud is a judge in Dudley, had a blood alcohol content nearly three times the legal limit when she crashed her car into a guardrail along Interstate 190. She also admitted to using heroine and offered to perform sexual favors for state trooper Ryan Sceviour in exchange for leniency.
Sceviour has since filed a lawsuit against Massachusetts Police commanders for forcing him to remove details regarding Bibaud’s comments about sex and her father from the arrest report. State Police confirmed the changes to the documents were ordered but denied any wrongdoing.
Rei, who administered Bibaud’s drug test, said the judge’s daughter admitted to trading sex for heroin the night she was arrested. Rei was later told to remove anything embarrassing or sexual from her report and then to shred her notes, according to the Boston Globe.
On Thursday, Gov. Charlie Baker opened a review of the edited arrest report, the Globe reports, due to “a significant set of serious allegations.” The investigation is ongoing, Baker said Friday.

Attorney General Maura Healey has also said she is investigating the situation. Rei’s lawyer, Lenny Kesten, who also represents Sceviour, says he is now filing a similar lawsuit on her behalf against State Police leadership.
