Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You need to file a complaint with the law enforcement department the bailiff works for with their internal affairs, professional accountability unit. Other than that, legally you do not have any recourse against the bailiff. If you pleaded guilty, then I am afraid you lost even your rights to appeal the decision.
