New York, NY —
Three New York City police officers are on trial in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn. These officers are accused of sexually assaulting a Brooklyn man at a subway station during an arrest.
REPORTER: They deny the incident and defense attorneys have sought to discredit Michael Mineo's claims, in part, by questioning his character.
