We, the family and friends of innocent police officers and civilians who have been maliciously prosecuted and imprisioned by Jeanine Pirro, believe it is our moral obligation and responsibility to keep her from doing to the justice system and the Courts of New York State what she has done in Westchester County, New York. WE ARE DETERMINED TO STOPIRRO!!!!!!!

After 21/2 Years of Investigation: Are we closer to finding Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario's killer?
By Robert Masterson

Driving up Oak Street from Yonkers Avenue, driving up to the top of Nodine Hill is like traveling back in time. It's always been a working class neighborhood. The row houses seem to jostle shoulder-to-shoulder for sidewalk space under a canopy of electrical wiring; telephone and electrical lines crisscross over the streets like they do in the old photos of old towns in decades past. Nodine Hill has always been a working class neighborhood, but now that the factories that once provided work for the fathers and sons and husbands and brothers of Nodine Hill are long shuttered, the neighborhood is slipping. The closeness of the houses has become claustrophobic; high above the rest of the city and overlooking the Hudson River, their bulk just blocks the view, keeps everything but Nodine Hill screened off and unseen. A neighborhood that at one time could have been described as "tidy" or "neat" now seems shabby, dingy, crumbling. Nodine Hill seems tired and sad.
But, the kids. There are kids everywhere on the streets of Nodine Hill. All ages, from babies in bulging disposable diapers to pre-teens in ghetto-styling heat wave gear. It's hot and getting hotter with each passing day of another Yonkers summer, and the kids (by the tens? the dozens? the hundreds?) are flying up and down the simmering streets, in and out of the deli, in and out of the bodega, up and down the sagging steps of sagging apartment buildings. Stripped down for the heat, the kids of Nodine Hill are a constantly moving mosaic of sundresses and shorts and bare feet and brown skin getting browner in the pounding sunlight of another Yonkers summer.
One day, not a summer day but in the seemingly constant gray of another Yonkers winter, one day around November 2 of 1999, one of those kids, a12-year old named Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario, disappeared from Nodine Hill. Sometime between that day and January 23, 1999, Orlandito met the person or persons who used him for sex, killed him and dumped his body along the Saw Mill River Parkway in Dobbs Ferry, just north of Yonkers. They or he or she, whoever it was, plucked Orlandito from the streets of Nodine Hill and somehow fucked the life out of the boy. They or he or she, whoever it was, scuffed out a shallow grave amongst the garbage that litters this heavily trafficked Westchester artery and dumped Orlandito's body to rot there among the pop bottles and plastic bags and fast food wrappers.

The investigation into Orlandito's disappearance led Yonkers and Dobbs Ferry police to another Nodine Hill resident, then 35-year old Robert DeRosario, who, according to a police source nicknamed the "Birdman" had been seen with the boy prior to his vanishing from the neighborhood. Seizure and examination of DeRosario's home computer led to the arrests of several prominent Westchester citizens including then-Yonkers city manager James Surdoval. DeRosario eventually pled guilty to charges of having sex with underage boys and was sentenced to ten years in state prison. Surdoval eventually pled guilty to over one hundred counts of possessing child pornography as well as having sex with an underage boy. Surdoval was among those charged who received five years of probation.
Now, after two-and-a-half yearsof investigation, no person or persons has been charged with any of the crimes visited upon Orlandito--neither his kidnapping, his rape nor his murder. The only official suspect, DeRosario, now sits in a New York state prison and will remain there for another decade or so, doing hard prison time for the same crimes for which other Westchester men received relatively light taps. The investigation into Orlandito's murder has not appeared to move forward nor in any new directions. The Dobbs Ferry police department considers the case open and active; the file on Orlandito's murder remains sealed to all but law enforcement. Whatever evidence and data it holds to support or contradict DeRosario's guilt remains secret. The county police website Crime Tips seeks information linking DeRosario to Orlandito's murder and offers a $5000 reward for that specific information and no other.
On January 5, 2000, almost exactly one year after Orlandito's body was discovered along the Saw Mill River Parkway, 347 days after Orlandito's body was recovered from the trash, at about 9:15 a.m. Richard Roberti was preparing breakfast for his family at his Lanesville, New York, home up in Green County in New York's Catskill Mountains more than one hundred miles from Nodine Hill when he alleges Police Chief George Longworth, Dobbs Ferry Detective Thomas Leahy, Westchester County Police Detective Christopher Calabrese and Westchester County Police Detective Robert Goirdano walked into his house unannounced and sat down at the table with the kids. Beginning that day and for the next 18 months, Roberti would feel strongly enough that his rights had been violated to fight the charge until its dismissal earlier this year and, in April 2001, to file a lawsuit asking for $30 million in compensatory and punitive damages from Longworth, three other Dobbs Ferry and Westchester County detectives, the village of Dobbs Ferry and, at least for now, Westchester County.

"I asked who they were and what they wanted," Roberti states. "The biggest guy said he was Dobbs Ferry Chief of Police George Longworth. They were investigating the [Orlandito Maldonado-] Rosario murder...and they needed to ask me some questions. I told them I knew nothing about the case."
Roberti had grown up on Nodine Hill and all his life had been close to members of Robert DeRosario's family. After leaving the neighborhood nearly twenty years ago, Roberti stayed in touch. DeRosario had visited Roberti's rambling Catskill compound; phone calls between Lanesville and Yonkers were frequent. Roberti knew about DeRosario's arrest and knew about the charges of child molestation and possibly murder. He says that when DeRosario called asking for some help, for a place to stay outside of Yonkers and maybe some work to help out with some of the bills, he had to turn DeRosario down.
"I've got kids," Roberti says. "I can't have anything to do with something like that. I can't bring that kind of stuff into my home."
However, before that day of January 5, 2000, was through, Roberti says he would have his house and his life "tossed.". He would be arrested on a criminal weapons charge. Roberti's lawsuit (which has been filed but not yet served) alleges that, since "it is a custom and/or policy of the Village of Dobbs Ferry Police Department, when it comes to the investigation of the Orlandito [Maldonado]Rosario homicide, to use any means necessary to find the murderer of Orlandito [Maldonado-]Rosario without regard to the constitutional rights of any other person," those law enforcement officers invaded the Roberti property without a proper warrant, authorization or identification. The suit alleges those officers took and have never returned property to the Robertis. The suit alleges those officers detained Roberti against his will. In an affadavit prepared on February 1 of this year for the lawsuit, Roberti states that Longworth and Company rummaged through his home and his personal life with the hope of coercing and/or extorting some kind of information that would implicate the aforementioned Robert DeRosario in the murder of Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario.
"'It would be a shame if you don't tell me what I want to know,'" Roberti says Longworth told him. "'This place will be one fucking disaster.' He threatened that they would wreck my home like they did to [Robert DeRosario's mother] Ann; all he had to do was say the word...He kept saying I was not telling him what he wanted to know."
Throughout that day and for the next 18 months, according to Roberti's suit, Chief Longworth and/or Dobbs Ferry detectives and/or Westchester County detectives continually demanded Roberti give them information linking DeRosario to the Orlandito's death in exchange for dropping the single gun charge, criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, for which they eventually placed him under arrest. Roberti had apparently failed to renew the license for a gun he had owned for years and, on the fifth day of the new year, found himself five days into illegal gun ownership.
The lawsuit alleges that things at the house got rougher as day progressed into evening. Sometimeafter 5:30 p.m., he says, after Longworth and his men had been inside the Roberti compound for over eight hours, there was a confrontation. According to Roberti, "Longworth came back to the table where I was and started yelling at me. [He said] 'I went over and had a talk with your son. You are a liar and your son is a fucking faggot and he allowed Bobby DeRosario to blow him. Now tell me what I want to know.'"
One night, a few weeks ago in June, Roberti discussed his suit with the Weekly. He told us:
[Longworth] kept saying to me, "If you tell us the information we want to know"--he assumed I knew something about this case--but he kept saying to me, "We know you know something. We know you know what we want to hear. You gotta tell us what we want to know." I kept saying to him, "I really don't know what you're talking about. I live here, they live down there. I don't know. God forbid if [DeRosario] did something wrong....He kept saying, "We have the DA in the palm of our hands. If you do what we tell you to do, if you do what we want you to do and help us with this case, whatever went down here today is finished. You'll be totally out of trouble. You'll be wiped out, clean."
Roberti's affadavit states, "The police continued to call me. Chief Longworth and his partner promised me if I helped them they would have the whole thing dropped. Longworth and his partner kept telling me they had the DA [Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro] in the palm of their hand. They called me three times a day for over a month. The first seven days they called everyday three times a day and changed my court date by postponing my appearance date...They said, 'Do you see that? We had your date changed so you can work with us. I told you we would take care of you, buddy. Right, buddy. We have the DA in the palm of our hand.'"
That single charge was dropped in May of this year when, according to Roberti's criminal attorney, Al Mainetti, Hunter Town Court Judge Edward R. Thorpe ruled the case "dismissed for failure by the People [the prosecution] to proceed with probable cause." Translation: the Dobbs Ferry and Westchester cops stopped coming up to Green County for hearings. Apparently the justification for and the cost of this particular prosecution were not worth pursuing.
The civil suit has been filed on behalf of Roberti and his son, Daniel Roberti, in Green County seeking that $30 million in monetary compensation for damages incurred in what is alleged to be Longworth & Company's illegal search of their property, illegal seizure of and subsequent failure to return property , illegal detention of themselves and other family members and "conduct exceed[ing] all reasonable bounds of decency."
Longworth was unavailable during the week prior to deadline for comment regarding these allegations and the progress of the Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario murder investigation. Why Longworth traveled 150 miles beyond his jurisdiction to pursue a minor charge based on a technicality and exactly what he feels may be Roberti's connection to Orlandito's murder beyond a life-long friendship with the DeRosario family both remain uncertain. Why the Dobbs Ferry and Westchester County investigators did not include local municipal, Green County or State law enforcement in their visit to the Roberti compound also remains unclear. Whether leads tied to Westchester County (such as the names found on DeRosario's America On Line buddy list or whatever physical evidence may have been recovered from Orlandito's Saw Mill River grave) have been pursued with the same vigor is unclear. Longworth and Company are not required to answer any of the lawsuit's allegations until one month after being served. A spokesperson for the Dobbs Ferry police department said she was not prepared to make any statement on behalf of any party regarding these matters.
Cold cases do get solved and, really, it hasn't been all that long since Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario was raped and killed. Chief Longworth himself told me a few months ago that Orlandito's murder would never be considered "cold." At this time, Orlandito's family, his father and brothers, appear to have moved back to their Puerto Rico where his mother lives. The police eyewitness, the "Birdman," doesn't seem to be around Nodine Hill much anymore. Derosario is still the only official suspect and we have no information to suggest that should be any different If these allegations regarding the Dobbs Ferry and Westchester investigation are true, those actions do nothing so much as confuse an already cloudy situation. It remains to be seen if two-and-a-half years(and counting) of investigation will ever lead to Orlandito's killer, if ever we learn who's the real-life Boogey Man in this story or if we will have to explain another Yonkers boy's death in some other way.

Anyone with any information regarding the murder of Orlandito Maldonado-Rosario is urged to call the Westchester County District Attorney's office (914.995.3414) or the Weekly (800.220.2720 x435).

Dear Mrs. DiGuglielmo,

I vaguely remembered this story so I went to the Newsday archives to aquaint myself more with the story. It seems this was a trajedy for both sides that started out over a stupid parking spot which then escalated into death. Albeit, Mr. Campbell obviously got carried away by yielding the baseball bat but I feel that your son as a police office went to the extreme, especially firing more than one shot at the man. As a Police Officer he should have chosen another mode of taking Campbell out especially since he had a bat (not a gun)and his brother-in-law was there to help him. Two against one. Here is what the April 11 and April 18, 2001 issue of Newsday says about the incident:

At least three men testified yesterday that they were victims of the DiGuglielmos' wrath after parking in one of the five spaces outside the deli.

Richard Bullen, from Hastings-on-Hudson, said that in June 1985 he parked outside the deli to pick up pizza when the younger DiGuglielmo reached into his car and tried to choke him.

Richard Jacobs, the director of development at the Horace Mann School, testified that after the blizzard of 1996 he parked outside the deli to walk his baby-sitter home up a steep hill. Jacobs, who planned to shop at the deli, said as he walked from his car, the elder DiGuglielmo cursed and threatened him.
"I don't care if you come after me with 10 lawyers, I'll find out where you and your family live and tear your hearts out," Jacobs quoted DiGuglielmo as saying. Jacobs said he later tried to press criminal charges but was discouraged by police.

McCartney also said the DiGuglielmo family and corporation should be held liable for the killing, noting that there were 20 other confrontations between the family and motorists in the lot dating back to 1979.

It seems your family has a history of getting annoyed and angry with people parking next to your Deli. Your son apparently has an Italian temper which he should of controlled as a Police Officer.

Both lives are ruined over a stupid parking spot. It was ultimately the Jurors who condemned your son, not Jeannine Pirro.

I'm truly sorry for your sorrow.

A mother, would not conduct herself the way Mrs.Pirro has. Disfunction is key in that family. Look at the humiliation the Pirro children have had to endure as a result of their parents sick and twisted behavior.

The people surrounding Jeanine may be plastic but the Queen is made of stone. She has to soul, she sold that to the devil many many years ago. Pirro's maker already has her room ready in the 'basement'.

Elaine, the only answer is to tell anyone you know that lives in Westchester County is to:
Vote on November 8th, if they are not registered to do so.
Most important to VOTE OUT THE REPUBLICANS and STOP THE RUBUBLICAN EMPIRE THAT HAS BEEN CREATED BY GOV. PATAKI, SEN. NICK SPANO,JEANINE PIRO, THEY ARE THE LEADERS OF THE "CIRCLE OF FRIENDS"
These individuals have called the shots for years. The lives of the victims on this site, and many more,have been destroyed. It is time to take government back to the people where it belongs and have our voice be heard.

I don't know if any of us can be sorry enough for someone's sorrow
when it is compounded by a complete lack of accountability. It has an 'unfinished' aspect that does not permit things to heal as
they should and maybe never.

The only thing I will add to this particular post is that if
you were in the Courtroom (as the writer was); saw and heard the
testimony (as the writer did); understand the importance of what
evidence was permitted and which of it was not; and were conversant
enough in the law to understand jury instructions, what they mean
and what they can do....then can one form a valid opinion.

It is naive to believe that juries cannot be influenced by the
strength of a particular side's presentation of their case. It
is even more naive to re-familiarize oneself with 'facts' solely on a newspaper's account of them. They don't have the time, space _nor_ inclination to give you anything but the 'story'.

The first thing I want to say is to Elaine...and it's thank you. This has been a long and painful road (just so far)..and it was such a surprise to me to see anyone comment on Jeanine's (very public) refusal to acknowledge my daughter.

Small minded people have small ways...and Jeanine's inability to separate a child's well-being from her own desires is a good insight into her vindictive character. It doesn't look good on the resume of someone who wishes to be thought of as material for national public office.

It simply will not suffice to continue to give this woman a never-ending list of excuses for bad behavior and worse judgment (i.e. I didn't know what I was signing; I'm not an appendage; I don't want to even know the child).

Also, I would like to add that while voting has been the 'American voice' in action, it is - by itself - not enough. At least I believe that we find ourselves in this position with our leaders because we have not been sufficiently mindful in our social responsibilities. The law works, it's people (either by act or omission) that screw it up.

Voting is only half of it. And the situation with electronic voting machines...hopefully, everyone is paying attention. I am told that the test for this Sequoia equipment took place in Riverside County, CA (where, coincidentally - or not - Al and Jeanine own a timeshare. Distance.).

Elaine, bravo. And thank you.

Thank you anonymous for your response.

First I’d like to say Mr. Campbell was not only wielding the bat, he struck my husband several times as well as almost striking my son in-law in the head. Robert hit the ground after loosing balance when ducking form the swinging bat. He was down and assumed hurt when Richard ran out of the Deli.

Mr. Campbell was asked to move his car to the lower lot, his response to that was,” I’m not moving no mother f-----g car”. A warning tow sticker was placed on his window. His response was to charge across the street towards my husband whose back was turned. Richard Jr. tried to stop Campbell, with his hands raised, palms forward he said “there’s no need for that”, he was struck by Campbell with severe sledge hammer blow.

Campbell threw the first blows, and when he said it’s over and acted as though he was leaving instead he went to his trunk, unrolled a metal bat from a small mat and said “here this is for you”, and struck my husband full force with the bat.

Campbell had no way of knowing that my husband had a heart attack just a few months prior to the incident but my son certainly did. I’m sure this raised the level of fear for his father’s safety.

It should be clear that the only person that had a temper that night was Campbell. Being asked to move a car may be annoying to some, but Campbell’s reaction that night could only be considered over the edge and criminal.

The testimony you referred to was at the civil trial not the criminal trial. Mr. McCartney stated there were 20 other confrontations. To be corrected there were 20 responses by DF police, (many of which I called in), during a period of 27 years. Of these, 6 or 7 alleged pushing or shoving, both sides were heard and no police action was taken.


The statement made to police by Mr. Bullen says Richard Sr. grabed him and that he was standing by his car. According to you he says it was junior. So which was it and why didn’t he pursue it back in 1985?

Richard reacted exactly how he was trained. He met deadly physical force with deadly physical force. He fired three rounds center mass as trained. “Three shots and reassess the threat”.

Yes, I do blame DA Pirro, the facts of this case were manipulated, and witnesses were pressured to change or embellish their statements. One witness who said on national new that night, “it was strictly self-defense; you could hear the wack of the bat a block away.” In his written statement said Campbell never stopped swinging the bat. At trial one year later he said after he thought about it he changed his mind. The jury was not allowed to view the tape and to this day probably have no knowledge of its existence.


Campbell’s criminal record was suppressed while my family was being portrayed racists, trouble makers for one whole year. The over 200 negative newspaper articles and weekly protests out side my business tainted the jury pool. Like yourself you believe what you read. If the public had been told of Campbell’s prior criminal assault convictions maybe the public would realize it was about a baseball bat not a parking space.

DA Pirro held a special news update stating she had 13 witnesses that heard racial slurs. That was an outright lie and she knew it. During a 33 day trial not one witness was presented to verify that allegation. Did she at anytime come forward and say that was a mistake or not credible information? To the contrary, she has gone on to portray my son as having shot him because he was black.
