Worcester County judge’s daughter at center of State Police scandal resolves case

The final charge resulting from a drunken driving arrest last fall that triggered a State Police scandal was resolved on Tuesday, according to the Middlesex district attorney’s office. Fallout in the aftermath of the arrest of a Worcester County judge’s daughter forced the head of the State Police and three members of the command staff to retire.

Alli Bibaud, 31, of Worcester “admitted to sufficient facts on the remaining pending charge against her, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of drugs,” in Framingham District Court on Tuesday, according to the DA’s office.

Judge James Sullivan continued the case without a finding until Jan. 16, 2019, and ordered Bibaud to not operate a motor vehicle, to remain drug-free and alcohol free, and to be subject to random drug and alcohol tests, according to prosecutors. Bibaud must also complete a court-approved in-patient treatment program and enter a sober-living facility once she is released from the in-patient program, the district attorney’s office said.

Bibaud must also follow-up with recommendations of the probation department, authorities said.

According to court records and officials, Trooper Ryan Sceviour noted in his report after arresting Bibaud in Worcester on charges of drunken driving and driving under the influence of drugs in connection with an Oct. 16, 2017, crash that Bibaud admitted performing sex acts to support her addiction and also offered him sex in exchange for leniency. Sceviour wrote that Bibaud said her father was a judge and that “he’s going to kill me.” Bibaud blew 0.22 on her breathalyzer test after the single-car crash, nearly three times the legal limit.

Then-Colonel Richard McKeon announced he would be retiring as the agency’s superintendent after he was criticized for ordering Sceviour to alter a report he wrote after arresting Bibaud, whose father is Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud. Three members of the agency’s command staff also retired in the fallout from the scandal.

Sceviour, and another trooper, Ali Rei, filed suit, saying they were illegally forced to alter the report regarding Bibaud’s arrest. A federal judge tossed that suit earlier this month, but the troopers still have a similar civil suit pending in Suffolk Superior Court, according to court documents.

In November, Alli Bibaud pleaded guilty to drunken driving and negligent operation of a motor vehicle in connection with the Oct. 16 crash.
