Two new York police officers accused of raping 18-year-old girl

Two officers assaulted 18-year-old resident of new York. They detained her for possession of marijuana and prescription drugs, finding drugs in a car in which the girl was with two friends. Releasing the boys, the guards put their companion in the van and drove to the Parking lot. Then they threatened her to the police station and raped — all the while the victim was handcuffed. The incident took place in Coney island on September 15.

After the incident she did not call the police on their own, and hired a lawyer. Exactly a month ago, on 28 September, human rights defender Mr Michael David gave the NYPD a statement against rapists. However, police were reluctant to take action, citing the fact that his client voluntarily agreed to the sexual contact with the officers.

It quickly gained publicity and it yielded results.

Last Thursday took place the meeting of the investigating jury for the scandalous case, in which Eddie Martins and Richard Hall of the Brooklyn division of drug control issued a verdict on the criminal prosecution.

Citing a source close to the police, NBC reports that officers be dismissed from service. They are threatened by punishment in the form of deprivation of liberty for a term from 3 to 25 years.

While the suspects are not in a hurry to plead guilty. The lawyer for the Martins said the news Agency that he and his client «look forward to the opportunity to challenge the charges in court.»
