NYC Rape Cop Sentenced

Former police officer Kenneth Morena, who had been accused along with Franklin Mata of raping a drunken woman in her apartment in 2008, was convicted of three counts of official misconduct and sentenced to one year in jail today.

Moreno and Mata, also a former NYPD officer, had been acquitted of rape charges, but were fired from the force directly after the ruling. Mata is expected to be sentenced later this afternoon.

The two men were originally scheduled to be sentenced in June, but the ruling was delayed after attorneys requested to view an HBO documentary about the Manhattan District Attorney sex crimes unit, the group prosecuting the case. NYC Rape Cop Sentenced
