Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Risteen and Major Susan Anderson retired this afternoon, according to officials.

Anderson has been named as part of a lawsuit by a state trooper for her alleged actions in the aftermath of Alli Bibaud’s arrest. Risteen was said to have directly participated in the conspiracy, according to recent court filings.

The two troopers who are suing state police claim they were forced to change arrest reports to protect Bibaud.

The scandal has already led to the resignations of Colonel Richard Mckeon and his second in command, Lt. Francis Hughes.
