Denying that he had anything to do with the suppression of his daughter’s comments,that Judge Bibaud told Worcester Magazine : “‘It’s a bald-faced lie that I orchestrated it”.
“It wasn’t even an issue for me. I never had anything to do with contacting the State Police or the DA.
“My sole concern was toward my kid. She’s going to taste her medicine like she deserves,” Judge Bibaud told the magazine.
He said the first he heard of the report was when a fellow judge called him as he was diving home after visiting his daughter in rehab. That judge had called the report ‘outrageous.’
In the aftermath, the head of the state police, Superintendent Richard McKeon, the head of the state’s police, and his deputy Francis Hughes, both tendered their resignations.

At her preliminary hearing, the court was told that Alli Bibaud, who lived at home with her parent, had checked into rehab at the AdCare Hospital in Worcester. She is scheduled to move to the Plymouth House facility in Plymouth, New Hampshire, on Friday after a bed opened up there.
On the orders of State Chief Justice Paul Dawley, the case moved to Framingham from Worcester in a bid to ‘prevent a conflict of interest or the appearance thereof.’
On Friday, Bibaud was charged with driving under the influence of both narcotics and alcohol. No mention was made in court of offers of sexual favors.
She was sentenced to 14 months probation on the condition she complete an inpatient rehab program. After that she will have to live in a halfway house. According to her
defense attorney, Michael Wilcox, the defendant has been sober since her arrest.
‘The overwhelming concern is that she receive the treatment she so desperately needs,’ Cox said.
Dudley District Court Judge Tim Bibaud has strongly denied involvement in the alleged alteration of an arrest report on his 30-year-old daughter, Alli, which details drug use and prostitution
Alli Bibaud, seen in her mugshot, admitted she had used heroin that day and had drunk ‘a couple of nips’ of liquor. Police also found a ‘heroin kit’ in her car
Lightening rod: Alli Bibaud with her boyfriend John McLean. Attempts to erase the nature of her arrest, has law enforcement heads rolling in Mass.
According to Sceviour, she offered sexual favors if he let her off.
In the police car on the way to the barracks Alli told Trooper Sceviour: ‘My father’s a f**king judge. He’s going to kill me.’
The cop told her he didn’t believe her and she then offered him sex for leniency.
Once at the police station she was breathalyzed and found to be nearly three times over the state’s blood/alcohol limit.
‘Bibaud admitted to using heroin on this date and stated that she had acquired her heroin this morning for her and her boyfriend. She stated,’ Sceviour wrote but her actual words were again blacked out.
In his lawsuit, Sceviour also said the judge’s daughter admitted trading sex for money to pay for the drugs and he wrote that in the report which was subsequently approved by his immediate superior Sgt. Jason Conant.

She is seen choking back the tears as she was sentenced Friday to 14 months probation, on condition she completes an inpatient drug rehabilitation program
In her own lawsuit trooper Rei said: ‘Ms. Bibaud stated that she was ‘sick of living like this,’ Asked what she meant ‘[Bibaud] responded by stating that she had to perform multiple sexual acts in order to obtain the drugs for ‘us’ [presumably], for herself and her boyfriend,’ Rei states in her affidavit.
Three days after the arrest, Sceviour was on a day off at his home in Marshfield, Massachusetts, when, he says, he was woken by ‘a loud banging on the door of his house.’
He was ordered to the state police headquarters, immediately.
The redacted report for Alli Bibaud’s arrest
He drove 90 miles to the barracks where he was forced to remove those comments, [embarrassing to the judge], from his report.
The official report now reads: ‘During transport Bibaud hysterically screamed and cried and stated,’ with the rest of the sentence blacked out.
‘During the performance of the breath test Bibaud made multiple inappropriate comments,’ wrote Sceviour, again with her actual words redacted.
He and his supervisor, Sgt. Conant, were both reprimanded for including Bibaud’s comments about sex in their report.
‘The written reprimand indicated that Trooper Sceviour was being disciplined for the ‘negative and derogatory statements included within the gist of your report,’ the attorney wrote.
‘Sergeant Conant was reprimanded for ‘approving this report and allowing inappropriate commentary to be included in the report.’
‘I did nothing wrong’ –Major Susan Anderson, [center], allegedly bullied trooper Sceviour into redacting his report, claiming the order had come from Mass. secretary of public safety, Daniel Bennet, and passed on by state police chief, Richard McKeon – a claim Bennett’s office has denied
But Sceviour said the lieutenant who gave the reprimands said the two cops ‘had done nothing wrong’ and admitted he would have included the statements if he had prepared the report. The lieutenant said he was ‘forced’ to reprimand the pair on orders from above.
Sceviour and his union rep then met another superior officer, Major Susan Anderson, who had demanded the reprimand. He claims she also admitted he had done nothing wrong, however the censure ‘was ordered by the Colonel,’ referring to superintendent McKeon.
When he resisted the order to amend his report as ‘morally vacant’, Major Anderson insisted, ‘This is an order,’ Anderson allegedly said.
‘[We] all have bosses.’
Alli leaving court Friday, When she was released to the custody of her father, after her preliminary hearing she immediately checked into an inpatient rehab program at the AdCare Hospital in Worcester. She was transferred to a facility in New Hampshire after her sentencing on Friday.
Anderson claimed the cover up order had come from Massachusetts secretary of public safety Daniel Bennett, passed on by police chief McKeon.
Secretary Bennett’s office has denied he played a role in the matter.
Sceviour said he even asked his union rep what would happen if he refused to make the changes but was told he would be charged with insubordination and could be fired.
‘If this was some random person and not a judge’s kid, none of this would be happening,’ Sceviour replied.
He is asking a federal court to expunge his reprimand and to award him unspecified damage and an apology for the damage to his reputation and emotional distress.
Trooper Ali Rei, said she was told to shred her records of the arrest and remove Bibaud’s offer to barter sex for leniency from computer logs, but she did not.
‘Despite Major Anderson’s direct order, Trooper Rei did not shred the copies of the Administrative Journal extract and did not alter her DRE report to remove the incriminating statements made by Ms. Bibaud,’ her lawsuit said.
‘Trooper Rei is in fear of being disciplined and terminated from her employment because she did not obey Anderson’s illegal orders. As a result, Trooper Rei suffered and continues to suffer from severe emotional distress as a result of the orders that were given to her by Major Anderson to commit illegal acts.’
