Dec. 10, 2005 Michelle Rogak, Newfield HS science teacher, files a complaint. She
received harassing phone calls for 6 months yet did nothing. Four
months after the alleged calls stopped she filed a
complaint. The police said it’s based on recognition of my voice (lie). She
swore she couldn’t place the voice and she never even accused me. She was
intimate with me and would have recognized my voice. She didn’t because it
wasn’t me. Stephanie Veraldi told Michelle Konik, who told her it
was me. She
also said we “dated” (lie). It turns out she was engaged to be
married while we were “involved”.
17, 2005 I try to file a
report that my identity was stolen at the 7th precinct. The officer
refuses and sends me away. That same day…
Dec. 17, 2005
Stephanie Veraldi, Michelle Konik’s student, files a complaint. First she states it was a “hang up call”
to “a male voice whispering”. She swore I harassed her in Aug. 2005 but had a
64 minute conversation with me a month later (while in college) and waited 3
months after that to file a complaint. Her reason for complaining was because
she heard I was calling others but she’s the one who wrongfully told the others
I was calling!
Dec. 19, 2005
Allison Engstrom, Newfield HS math teacher, files a complaint. She
states she received calls for 5 months, did nothing but laugh, joke, and play
along, and 5 months after they ended she complained.
She never called
the police, didn’t feel threatened or harassed and didn’t really want to press
charges! Allison also never accused me. She was intimate
with me and would’ve
recognized my voice. She didn’t because it wasn’t me! Michelle Konik said it
Jan. 11, 2006
Christina Impastato files a complaint. She
never met me or heard my voice, and couldn’t possibly ID me. She also
never accused me.
Stephanie told her that her and her friend (Michelle
Konik) figured out that I was called her. Here’s the kicker. Christina referenced actual dates and times she
received calls. None of which lead back to me!
Feb. 7, 2006
Michelle Konik, Newfield Social Studies teacher, files a complaint. She
claims she told me not to call her anymore but records show over 70 phone
conversations, some an hour long, between January and February 7th alone
plus countless sexual relations. She said I threatened her during a 10 minute
conversation but admits I ended the call. She would’ve stayed on forever
because she wasn’t threatened! I also distinctly remember me telling her to stay away from my
family whom she was harassing.
Feb. 8, 2006:
to take my mom out for her birthday, I’m arrested and paraded in town of
Hampton Bays by Michael Cosgrove and Wayne Heter.
Feb. 8, 2006
Nancy Maletta (Stephanie Veraldi’s mom) files a complaint. The date,
2/8/06, makes it impossible for me to have called her when she claims since I
was in police custody, chained to the floor of the interrogation room. She said
the caller never said anything, not one word! The alleged “hang ups” were in Aug. 2005 and 6 months later she decided
she was bothered? She also never accused me. A police
officer told her I
Feb. 8, 2006
Rocco Veraldi (Stephanie Veraldi’s Dad) files a complaint. It says the
same thing as Nancy’s. If the caller
never said anything, he doesn’t know me, and my number is not on his phone records,
then how could he accuse me? He couldn’t and that’s why he never accused me.
Why would I call people I don’t know, not say a word, and hang up?
Feb. 9, 2006:
Central Islip Court, forced to post enormous bail, and sent to Riverhead jail.
At a televised press conference, Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said he
considered the alleged acts a form of terrorism. They launch a witch hunt to bolster their case and publicly invite
all women who ever received a disturbing phone call to come forward. They never
receive one call…not even a prank call.
The prosecutor is
Adina Weidenbaum and the delays begin. Stephanie Veraldi and Michelle Konik
harass and stalk me. Konik somehow finds me in Las Vegas! Nobody stops them.
22, 2006 Michelle Konik’s
therapist, Anne Rudolph, breaks confidentiality and calls to warn me of the
dangers associated with her!
1, 2006 Their witch hunt
fails so they stoop as low as arresting me again for violating an order of
protection (I didn’t). I was blasted in the media again.
2006 the DA turns over
evidence. My phone records from April 2005-Nov 2005. It’s not the complete
record and does not tell the true story.
2006 the DA turns
over a “10 minute” recording as referenced in Michelle Konik’s complaint. The
real conversation is longer but nobody listens to me. I’m offered a plea of 4
misdemeanors and 60 days in jail. No chance.
2006 the DA refuses
to meet with my attorney’s.
2006 although it’s
obvious that my Miranda Rights were violated, a Huntley Hearing is scheduled to
13, 2007 prosecutor changed to Kathleen Kearon, hearing delayed twice.
7, 2007 prosecutor admits to a Miranda violation, hearing adjourned.
19, 2007 another
the hearing concludes. I wish everyone could read the testimony of Officer
Wayne Heter. He made a mockery of the courtroom and police force. Here are just
a few of his many ridiculous statements;
1. He didn’t
arrest me at the high school because he didn’t want to
embarrass me. It was 4:30pm on a cold winter day, nobody was at the school. My
home was one minute from the precinct but he arrested me in the middle of the
crowded town. I was on every news
channel and newspaper. The exact goal was to
2. He said I never requested a call to an attorney
(the phone log shows otherwise).
3. The veteran police officer
stated he never heard of video or
audio-taping an interrogation, and didn’t know the full scope of the Miranda
stated he didn’t keep a book with notes regarding his thorough investigation. Prosecutor,
Ms. Kearon, refused to turn over documents in her possession. The judge warned
of the consequences of refusing to turn over documents I was entitled to by law.
She still refused. There’s a reason…keep reading! Final arguments are put
10, 2007 another delay.
20, 2007 DA’s motion
states I was charged Aug. 7, 05. It was Feb. 8, 06!
2007 the judge officially rules there was a Miranda
3, 2007 in court for trial
dates, prosecutor changed again, to Michael Manning, delay.
26, 2007 another
adjournment. My attorney tells me the DA doesn’t want to go to trial, Michelle
Konik had issues, and the case is no big deal but a big deal was made of it so they’re
backed in a corner. They all knew I was railroaded.
8, 2008 attorney, Lori
Horowitz, withdraws from my case (I’m broke).
22, 2008 Court
appearance pushed back as I wait for trial dates.
5, 2008 pushed back
26, 2008 I'm coerced and warned about this website (told
to shut it down).
there is anything like that, that could be embarrassing to
anybody in this courtroom, the police, the district attorney, or the judicial
system, I suggest it not be on there by the end of today…” - Judge Donohue
2008 but somehow the DA is allowed to speak
and again releases stigmatizing statements to the media.
Loeffler of the DA’s office releases more statements.
Clifford, spokesman for DA Thomas Spota, falsely confirms to the media
that one of the charges involved a former student.
26, 2009 forced to plead to two violations because I’m unable to find a job since the arrest, have no money for
a defense or to live. Hampton Bays UFSD breaches
on an agreement for me to return to work. I’m left for dead.
17, 2009 I send a letter
to DA Thomas Spota. No response
27, 2009 another letter
to Spota. No response
5, 2009 3rd
letter to Spota and hand delivered a 4th. No response

21, 2009 I send a letter
to Andrew Cuomo. No response
23, 2009 7th precinct officer takes report. Supervising officer
refers me to DA’s office and states if the DA is willing to prosecute Michelle
Konik-Brosdal (married name), we will arrest her.
28, 2009 I file ID theft report with NY
FBI, Fed. Trade Commission, and Soc. Sec. Administration.
13, 2010 another letter
to Andrew Cuomo. No response
2010 I finally
secure full time employment and begin saving for an attorney. This takes time
because of the debt I incurred.
Konik-Brosdal admits under oath, she stole my
identity to get my phone records, contacted a woman I dated, and referenced use
of a calling card and being in my home. The police knew this months’ prior to
9, 2010 I contact the DA’s
office after learning above info. A detective returns my email and gives me a
number to call.
10, 2010 The detective leaves
me a message. I call and leave message.
16, 2010 I call and email the detective the information he requested.
9, 2010 after learning the details he stops communicating. I call many
times, each time I’m put on hold then told he’s in a meeting. I send email (ignored).
30, 2011 I email the
1, 2011 He responds and
I return email.
7, 2011 He responds and
cites criminal statutes. I respond in depth with my own references to
statutes regarding Michelle Konik-Brosdal’s criminal behavior.
4, 2012 another
detective from DA’s office schedules a meeting with me.
5, 2012 we meet.
He says statutes are up and refers me back to 7th precinct.
8, 2012 I
send follow up letter to detective.
11 2012 I
email the original detective. He forwards it to another detective. I’m
referred back to 7th precinct. I call 7th and
speak with officer who refers me back to DA’s office and admits my complaint
was never investigated.
13, 2012 A detective calls me back
17, 2012 A detective refers me back to 7th precinct. I call 7th and
speak with detective, “Why wasn’t she arrested”? He transfers me to another
officer who refers me to another detective from 7th precinct ID
theft. He calls me at 1:30pm.
18, 2012 I
call detective. He also doesn’t know why she wasn’t arrested. He says the
statutes are up, I should have went to the FBI (I did!), and because I’m not
Sarah Palin or famous it doesn’t matter!
* That’s what you call the
run around and covering for the real criminal. The statutes weren’t up when I
filed the report!
7, 2012 I
finally retain attorney and begin motion to reopen the case.
DA, Edward Bannon, opposes my motion. He doesn’t even address half the issues
and says I received the deal of the century (not kidding).
8, 2013 final
papers are delivered to Central Islip Courthouse, based on many things. Here’s
just a few:
1. I was
told the disposition of my case would be sealed
but it wasn’t. The ramifications are immense and this alone can be a
reason to reopen the case.
March 2007 the prosecution disobeyed the judge’s orders and the law by not
turning over documents that would have helped my defense. One example;
· A sworn statement
made 2 months prior to arrest by Michelle Konik.
She admitted, among other
things, to unauthorized access and use
of my social security number and cell-phone, calling a woman I went on dates
with, and setting up online accounts in my name so my records could
be sent to her!
· The authorities never legally received my phone records
(their evidence). Instead,
knowing Michelle Konik was accessing my
records illegally, they sent her to print them out! In March 2007 Officer
Heter testified there was no crime in progress. However, the arrest
records state a “surveillance team” was
set up to catch me with a “crime in progress”. They falsified the arrest records because if there
was a crime in
progress they wouldn’t need probable cause or legal subpoena. They wanted it to look as if they did an investigation
rely solely on illegal activity and tainted evidence.
· The “10
minute” recording was indeed doctored as over
half of a 27 minute conversation was spliced out, altering its’
· The police stated the arrest was based on trace results. There
traces accept for one that was never turned over and does not lead back
· Besides violating
my Miranda Rights, the police didn’t employ any official identification
procedures to ID me.
· They had a
picture of me at Disney so the “surveillance team” could ID me. It was taken at
the same time period some of the alleged
calls were made. The other person in the picture, Michelle Konik, is conveniently
cut out. I guess it would have raised some questions and/or made her a suspect since
she was vacationing with someone she claimed was harassing women.
· Officer Heter’s “notes”
he did was listen to Michelle Konik and Stephanie Veraldi. He called the other complainants multiple times to
pressure them to file complaints (he’s guilty of harassment!). They attempted
to secure enormous amounts of complaints after the arrest but only secured the initial
7 linked to Michelle Konik and her student Stephanie Veraldi. Officer Heter’s own
words, “all persons did not want to
press charges and did not call PD in past about phone calls”. So the next
day, to finish me off, they falsely arrest me for violating an order of
19, 2013 Assuming he put his entire caseload aside when
he received my motion, it took a man with no prior knowledge of a 7 year case
about 3 business days to decide on a 500 page motion of detailed facts, laws
and exhibits. It took my attorney, a former prosecutor and now defense attorney
for over 20 years, 7 months to learn just enough to make the motion. That
explains the inaccurate ½ page reason, motion denied! It was never really
March 2013 a Notice of Appeal is filed. Perhaps
it’s a blessing to get out
of the “good ol boy” network in Suffolk County. It’s total anarchy. The
authorities can pick a man off the street, wrongfully arrest, defame, and
destroy him, without ever being questioned. Everyone look over your shoulders,
you may be next.
Note: That's the big case they went to the media
with? Prank calls (that I didn't make)? Aren't there real crimes going on in Suffolk? Ridiculous statements, a doctored recording,
illegally acquired evidence, really?
