Evelyn Nissirios — Soon, Her Crime Spree will be Over

The State has Accepted Criminal Charges against Her, and There will be Many More to Come

The Saddle River Board of Education has repeatedly ignored, dismissed, and dodged evidence of the involvement of one of its members — Evelyn Nissirios — in horrific violence against children, including criminal co-conspiracy in dozens of cases of child abuse, kidnapping, battery, rape, and most recently implication in child sex trafficking that may involve Satanic cults. Whereas the latest accounts have yet to be proven, a significant portion has been, and the trends and patterns are clear — and the Saddle River Board is in possession of significant medical evidence. Yet, despite being mandated reporters and, more concerningly, an institution whose primary duty is to protect children, its president, Emily Kaufman, wrote the following brief message, now almost two months ago:

Dear Dr. Lee,

All Board of Education members must be fingerprinted and undergo a New Jersey State criminal background check before they can serve as board of education members. All of the Saddle River Board of Education Members have satisfied this legal requirement to serve on a board of education and none of the board members have been charged with nor convicted of any disqualifying crime.


Emily Kaufman

This response is problematic on many levels. First, it comes after fifteen months and a half-dozen unanswered, lengthy communications with exhibits. Second, it is an odd response on the part of a Board of Education president, which is essentially stating: “I will not budge until I am forced to.” Third, even the little she states is no longer true: the State has indeed charged Nissirios with criminal, life-threatening harassment and potential felonies — and still, Nissirios remains on the Board.

Kaufman’s response reflects the problem of institutions that seem more preoccupied with self-interest and self-preservation than service to the public, or their very raison d’être. A normal response would have been alarm and concern for the children, not self-defense and excuses not to act in the face of immediate danger to children! Criminal prosecutions take a long time, and they depend on mandated reporters and frontline workers, such as school officials and medical professionals, to act independently on evidence and be a primary source of data. The minimal requirement in such a case would be to open an investigation — at the very least to remove imminent dangers under one’s charge, if present.

Furthermore, Nissirios is no ordinary member but one whom the community expressly rejected, having recently held an election with the explicit purpose of removing her and indeed voted her out. Yet, she remains through sheer, bald audacity and abuse of power, and the Board is keeping her, seemingly at all cost. In my twenty-five years of investigating criminal psychology for the courts, I find that this kind of “odd” behavior is usually not incidental. The Board may well know of Nissirios’ criminal activity but find her to be an “asset” to help them cover up their own corrupt actions, as well. This arrangement, however, will not last.

Below are the charges being brought against Nissirios, and they are only the beginning:

N.J.S.A. 2C:28–1, Perjury

A person is guilty of perjury, a crime of the third degree, if in any official proceeding she makes a false statement under oath or equivalent affirmation.

N.J.S.A. 2C:28–4, False Reports to Law Enforcement Authorities

Falsely incriminating another. A person who knowingly gives or causes to be given false information to any law enforcement officer with purpose to implicate another commits a crime of the third degree.

N.J.S.A. 2C:28–5, Tampering with Witnesses and Informants; Retaliation against Them

Tampering. A person commits an offense if, believing that an official proceeding or investigation is pending or about to be instituted or has been instituted, she knowingly engages in conduct which a reasonable person would believe would cause a witness or informant to: (1) testify or inform falsely; (2) withhold any testimony, information, document or thing; (3) elude legal process summoning him to testify or supply evidence; (4) absent himself from any proceeding or investigation to which he has been legally summoned; or (5) otherwise obstruct, delay, prevent or impede an official proceeding or investigation.

Retaliation against witness or informant. A person commits an offense if she harms another by an unlawful act with purpose to retaliate for or on account of the service of another as a witness or informant. The offense is a crime of the second degree if the actor employs force or threat of force.

N.J.S.A. 2C:28–6, Tampering with or Fabricating Physical Evidence

A person commits a crime of the fourth degree if, believing that an official proceeding or investigation is pending or about to be instituted, she: (1) alters, destroys, conceals or removes any article, object, record, document or other thing of physical substance with purpose to impair its verity or availability in such proceeding or investigation; or (2) makes, devises, prepares, presents, offers or uses any article, object, record, document or other thing of physical substance knowing it to be false and with purpose to mislead a public servant who is engaged in such proceeding or investigation.

N.J.S.A. 2C:33–4 Harassment

A person commits a petty disorderly persons offense if, with purpose to harass another, she [engages in a] course of alarming conduct or of repeatedly committed acts with purpose to alarm or seriously annoy such other person.

Multiple other, felony charges are still to come.

*This is the fifteenth of articles informing of criminal acts of violence against children by Evelyn Nissirios. As long as the child abuse, torture, battery, and rape continue under her criminal co-conspiracy with other violent offenders, there is a duty for onlookers not to be complicit, no matter her flaunting of “absolute judicial immunity.” “Judicial immunity” was never intended to cover serial felonies and destruction of children — “absolute” or not — and without which she may be eligible for the death penalty in some states. The prevention of child victims is an immediate obligation on the part of educational and legal institutions, regardless of competing interests. Emily Kaufman and others of the Saddle River Board of Education who have been protecting Nissirios are placed on notice, or they will be implicated in her crimes. All these events and more will be uncovered in the near future in a dramatic exposé of three separate books, a documentary, and a television series.
