NYPD Cop's Gunpoint Rape Trial Resumes

March 16, 2012  | 

The attorney representing a New York City police officer on trial for allegedly raping a school teacher at gunpoint said his client did "unforgivable" and "criminal" acts but shouldn't face 10 years to life, reports the New York Times.

Officer Franklin Mata, 27, allegedly threatened to shoot the 25-year-old woman in the face if she screamed or looked at him while he raped her in an Upper Manhattan courtyard last summer.

Yeah.Right. Wonder how long his victim will go through what happened. Disgrace to the Badge and to men everywhere. Put the pos in general pop and let him be on the receiving end of things. Gutless punk.

Oh yes he certainly should face 10 to life! I am leaning very much towards the life part myself. This garbage wore the badge and represented police officers and he took advantage of that by committing a disgusting crime and bringing shame to this woman and the police. I would not want to see this thing ever again outside prison walls.
