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.

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.
