Roger Barto ordered back to jail after appeal application denied

Judge Roger Barto is expected to go back to jail this Friday at 10:00 am in Seneca County Court. The Court of Appeals has denied his application for leave to appeal, and thus the stay of his sentence has automatically ended.

Barto was found guilty of faking an assault in order to file a medical claim, which took place in 2014. He alleged that an unknown assailant struck him over the head with a toilet lid, causing injury.

He was convicted and sentenced to six months in jail. He was granted the stay during his appeal process.
