Jury Requests Read Back of Accuser's Testimony in NYPD Rape Trial

Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Jurors in the trial of two NYPD officers accused of rape requested a read back of the accuser's testimony during the fourth day of deliberations.

Graphic testimony and conversations secretly recorded by the accuser outside the stationhouse while confronting one of the officers were heard by the jury during the seven-week trial.

The accuser claimed one of the officers who was called to help her into her East Village apartment in December 2008 because she was too drunk raped her. The second is accused of serving as a lookout.

Lawyers for the officers told jurors there was no DNA evidence to prosecute.

Officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata face 25 years in prison if convicted.
