Franklin mata

Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata tried to have the misdemeanor charges thrown out last month, but were denied by a panel of state appellate judges.
The two former "Rape Cops" who were famously acquitted of rape and burglary last year are back in court to fight their misdemeanor convictions.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for radiologists "is expected to grow faster than average." As of 2008, salaries ranged from $48K to $55K.
Moreno's attorney, Joseph Tacopina, has argued that the heroin was found in a shared locker, and that it didn't belong to him.
Patrick Kirkland answers readers' questions—such as "Why did you go to dinner with the defendants?"—about Confessions of a "Rape Cop" Juror, his account of serving on the controversial case.
Gothamist is proud to announce the publication of our first long-form non-fiction feature: Confessions of a "Rape Cop" Juror, by Patrick Kirkland, who was one of the jurors.
The ex-wife of the ex-cop who was recently cleared of raping a drunken young woman in her East Village apartment in 2008 is out for blood.
It appears that Moreno's defense team is still waiting for paperwork to be completed to grant his release from Rikers.
Former NYPD officer Franklin Mata was sentenced today to 60 days in jail and three years probation for official misconduct stemming from rape charges that he and his former partner were acquitted of in May.
Gratifying feelings of seeing "the system work" were chilled by the reality of the system itself: just hours after being sentenced and led away to jail, Moreno was released on $125,000 bail pending appeal.
As protests go, it was an intimate affair: around 50 people gathered amidst the skateboarders and tourists with camcorders attempting to document their time in front of the "Law & Order" courthouse.
The protest has been scheduled from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. tonight at Foley Square in Lower Manhattan.
