There are allegations that a married 34-year-old Kings County prosecutor with two children has been having an affair with a 33-year-old former NYPD detective who stands accused of raping an 18-year-old woman while she was handcuffed in the back of a police van on September 15, 2017. That prosecutor has now been referred for investigation for possible violations the rules of professional conduct for lawyers licensed in the State of New York. She had been a prosecutor for less than a year before her relationship with the former detective came to light. The relationship was discovered during a search of the cell phone records of one of the teen’s alleged assailants.
Like his former partner, the detective who was allegedly involved with the prosecutor is the subject of a 50 count indictment. The two men stand accused of taking the teenager into custody in Calvert Vaux Park for allegedly being in illegal possession of prescription medication. According to Newsweek, the teen was forced to perform a sexual act on one of the detectives while the other watched from the van’s rear view mirror while driving. The second detective then allegedly raped her. The phone calls between the prosecutor and former detective began before the alleged rape, but they continued after the September 15, 2017 date. The prosecutor is said to have known the second detective socially. A spokesman for the Office of the District Attorney stated that the married prosecutor and mother of two “had no involvement in or access to the investigation or prosecution of the two detectives.” Both of the former detectives claim that the sex with the teen was consensual, but they both resigned.
The attorney for the teen said that he intends to use the former detective’s affair with the prosecutor in a federal civil rights suit that both former detectives and the City of New York are defendants in. He asserted that it’s completely relevant to the civil rights lawsuit as it goes to the credibility of one or both of the former detectives. That lawsuit remains pending.
