A former NYPD officer was sentenced to 75 years to life for raping a woman
in the inwood section of New York. The case made headlines due to the
jury's decision to acquit the NYPD officer of the most serious offense
of Rape in the First Degree and instead convict on the lesser charge of
Sexual Assault. Although no reason was given for the decision, the
New York Criminal Defense Attorney in the case argued that the NYPD officer attempted to Rape the woman but
the sexual assault never resulted in penetration.
