Former NYPD Officer Gets 75 Years for Not-Rape

NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 27:  Members of the New York Police Department (NYPD) take part in a promotion ceremony attended by New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly at Police Headquarters on January 27, 2012 in New York City. Kelly appeared in the film "The Third Jihad" Muslim groups are asking him to step down, saying that the film they depicts Islam and its followers in a bad light. The film was shown to hundreds and maybe thousands of NYPD officers for training purposes.

Michael Pena was convicted in March of sexually assaulting a young teacher at gunpoint, but the jury failed to reach a verdict on the rape charges despite testimony from eyewitnesses and the victim. Regardless of technicalities, a judge gave him 75 years to life today and slammed the fired cop for violating his oath and the woman "in the most brutal and degrading manner possible." Prosecutors have until May 23 to request a retrial on the rape charges.
