FREEPORT - The Massapequa man who faked his own drowning to collect life insurance money is facing a judge today in connection to another crime.

Raymond Roth is now being tried on charges of impersonating a police officer, and attempting to kidnap a woman walking down the street in Freeport.

Roth's lawyer says his client has been on more than a dozen different medications, mostly for bi-polar disorder.

He pleaded guilty to the phony drowning at Jones Beach in 2012.
