Urge Judge Carro to Give Max Sentence to NYPD Officers

    1. Petition by

      National Organization for Women - NYC

On May 27, 2011, in the Manhattan Supreme Court, a jury acquitted two NYPD Officers of rape charges against an intoxicated woman they were dispatched to help in December of 2008. After a 6-week long trial, where mounting evidence and emotional testimony documented the sexual assault of the woman, the two officers involved were convicted of only three counts of official misconduct for entering her apartment without permission three times on the night of the encounter.

Are you as shocked as we are? Take Action!
Sign our petition NOW to Justice Gregory Carro to urge that he sentence Moreno and Mata to the maximum of two years for their official misconduct charges.

UPDATE: Sentencing for Moreno & Mata has been postponed to August 8, 2011.

      When we as citizens apply to become and accept positions as public servants we are sworn to uphold and enforce the laws of the land, to protect the citizens of our society from hurt, harm, and danger. Why is it then that when those very people who we as a society violate and hurt the ones that they swore to protect get a slap on the risk. Two years is just not enough time for the lifetime effect this crime will have on the person that was victimized by those that we called the "Finest" They deserve everything they get and hopefully whatever time they get it will help them see just how much of a negative impact that they have again added to the views of our police depts within our communities.

      When will the court system stop victimizing survivors of rape? It is a matter of justice, it is a matter of rights, it is a matter of moral imperative.

      Dear Judge Carro,

      As a mother and grandmother, I urge you to sentence Mr. Moreno and Mr. Mata to the maximum sentence allowed by law. These men were proven to have engaged in acts of misconduct. It is unfortunate they were not convicted on the rape charges. Their behavior that night in 2008 was inexcusable and a lengthy sentence will be the fair step in this case. Thank you for your consideration.

      Inexcusable. These officers mar the shield with their misconduct.
