Rape Charges Dropped Against NYPD Cops Who Had Sex With Teen

From the article:

According to the New York Daily News, former cops Richard Hall and Eddie Martins now face bribery and official misconduct charges for the September 2017 incident, in which they admitted to having sex with a teen identified as Anna Chambers after arresting her on a minor drug charge in Brooklyn.

Chambers, now 20, alleged the cops raped her, and DNA was found on her. The Brooklyn DA’s office, however, claimed Chambers made a number of “false, misleading and inconsistent statements,” including “false statements under oath,” which may have contributed to the dismissal. And though it is now (at long last) illegal for cops in New York to have sex with people in custody, that law did not exist in 2017. The age of consent in New York is 17.

Chambers’s lawyer, Michael David, told the New York Post it was “outrageous” that the DA’s office dropped the rape and kidnapping charges.

If I recall the case, she was handcuffed in a police vehicle when she was raped by both officers. She wasn’t the best witness, and they decided it wasn’t rape when two big police officers had her handcuffed in the back of that vehicle. How can you give consent in that situation?

Even worse, in 2017 it was not against the law for police in New York to fuck someone they had in custody. I mean the fact that they get off on these charges is enraging. She was 18 at the time, and although legally adult, I have a hard time imagining any woman managing to get out of that situation without being raped.

the rape and kidnapping charges were dropped but they are still facing bribery and official misconduct charges.
