Melanie Perez (not pictured) testified that police would give her crack cocaine and force her to perform sex acts in a recent police corruption trial in New York City.
The trial has revealed a lot of allegations against the Brooklyn South Narcotics squad, including a former officer who testified that police would plant drugs on innocent people in order to meet quotas. SMDH!
Perez also testified that the sexually demanding officer, whom she knew only as Frank, had later introduced her to a colleague, Sean Johnston, who also gave her narcotics on several occasions.
“He gave me a nice piece for Christmas,” she said. “It was crack and it was kickin’.”
The damning account came during the bench trial of Jason Arbeeny, one of eight undercovers charged in a scandal that rocked the Brooklyn South Narcotics squad.
The trial has already yielded troubling testimony on officers “flaking” – planting drugs on innocent victims – to meet arrest quotas and get overtime pay.
