Driving 20 miles over the limit is an arrestable offense. This District Attorney tells the Police Officer Cameron Crisafulli that “she doesn’t care if she’s going 20 over the limit” and uses the word “f*ck” multiple times while addressing him as she continues to justify holding herself above the law.

As of May 1, 2024, the investigation into Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley’s conduct is still ongoing. The Monroe County Office of Public Integrity (OPI) announced on April 30, 2024, reported that they would be investigating Doorley in conjunction with the Monroe County Board of Ethics.

This decision follows a lame public apology from Doorley and a referral for review to the state Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct by Governor Kathy Hochul. Foolishly, in her weak apology, she still justifies her entitled behavior saying she will be “disciplining herself.”

Doorley blamed the vulgar language she directed towards law enforcement officer Cameron Crisafulli on receiving alarming medical news about her husband, watching a taxi driver executed in his car, dealing with three homicides and, possibly the results of taking chemotherapy medicine.

A petition has begun on asking for the removal of Sandra Doorley.

New York State Governor Kathy Hochul has officially reported Sandra Doorley to the State Commission on Prosecutorial Conduct.

The investigation stems from a traffic stop incident on April 24, 2024, where a Webster Police Officer tried to pull Doorley over for speeding in Webster, New York (a suburb of Rochester, New York). Body camera footage captured Doorley arguing with the officer who attempted to pull her over.

Her behavior has been widely criticized, even by New York State’s Governor Kathy Hochul who has referred Doorley’s case for professional review.

Sandra Doorley was driving 20 miles over the speed limit yet refused to pull over – instead, she repeatedly defied the police officer’s legal command to pull over and drove all the way to her home in Webster, New York followed by the police cruiser with lights blazing and sirens blaring. She refused to pull over.

To further escalate the situation, instead of following the police officer’s instructions, she called the police officer’s superior, Webster Police Chief Dennis Kohlmeier asking him, “Can you please tell him to leave me alone?” She was using her position to pressure Police Chief Kohlmeier into ordering the police officer to “stand down.”

When “The” District Attorney (as she refers to herself) in any American city behaves in this criminal manner, it is no wonder why her direct reports do not really believe they should follow the law either.

When the police officer cites the legitimate law why he followed her trying to pull her over. Her response is to repeatedly tell him to “f*ck” himself. Don’t take anyone’s word for what happened – watch and listen to the actual video from the officer as well as the video by the supervisor called to the scene.

Our version of the traffic stop videos are RAW, UNEDITED and UNREDACTED.

The City of Rochester Council has formally asked the State of New York District Attorney for a review of Sandra Doorley’s behavior. It is notable that all the while Doorley berates and uses vulgarity to address the police officer, she uses “baby talk” to communicate with her dog.

Sandra Doorley took office in January 2020, just a few months before Daniel Prude‘s death.

Daniel Prude died in March 2020 after a mental health episode led to an encounter with Rochester Police. Officers used a spit hood to restrain him, and he went into cardiac arrest. He died seven days later.

While she was not the lead District Attorney during the Daniel Prude case, it did occur within her jurisdiction, and it was a high-profile incident that generated a lot of public scrutiny. Doorley has faced criticism for how her office handled some aspects of the Prude case, though she wasn’t directly involved in the initial decisions.
