After receiving “NO RESPONSE” regarding the documents delivered to Bucks County Officials on Thursday January 12, 2017

A Private Criminal Complaint was filed today in District Court naming as Defendants,
Bucks County Prothonotary, Patricia Bachtle
Bucks County Sheriff, Edward Donnelly
Bucks County District Attorney, Matt Weintraub
Bucks County First Assistant District Attorney, Michelle A. Henry
Bucks County Recorder of Deeds, Joseph J. Szafran
Honorable Jeffrey Finley, President Judge
… and others …

Magesterial District Court Judge Mark D. Douple indicated that the Complaint will be forwarded to Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub for review. However, as there is a conflict of interest, the complaint will likely be forwarded to the Pennsylvania Attorney General for action.

As former Bucks County First Assistant District Attorney, Michele Henry, has accepted a position as First Deputy Attorney General and reports directly to Attorney General Josh Shapiro, a conflict of interest may exist in the AG’s office as well.

First Deputy AG Michelle Henry said, “We’re pledging to one another and to every Pennsylvanian that this office places the highest value on integrity in our work – criminal prosecutions, civil litigation and public protection cases. It sends an important message to the public: You can have faith that the Office of Attorney General is striving every day to achieve justice and fairness in all that we do.”

Attorney General Josh Shapiro has stated, “We’re pledging to one another and to every Pennsylvanian that this office places the highest value on integrity in our work – criminal prosecutions, civil litigation, and public protection cases. It sends an important message to the public: You can have faith that the Office of Attorney General is striving every day to achieve justice and fairness in all that we do.”

“We will apply the law without fear or favor and infuse integrity in all that we do,” Shapiro said Tuesday, at his swearing-in ceremony, “so we can focus on best protecting you.”

Shapiro’s new code of conduct includes requirements such as “serving the interests of the citizens of Pennsylvania above his [or] her own” and “safeguarding all confidential information.”

“This code is a promise I’m making to you,” Shapiro said, “and a promise every member of this office is making to one another – to uphold the highest standard of integrity and ensure our justice system works for all.”

“This code reflects a basic principle,” Shapiro said, “and in signing it I join over 800 members of this office in recommitting ourselves to this truth:

“Public service is a public trust.”
