Police detective convicted of inventing a crime to imprison innocent man is allowed to walk free by judge

While Mr Hechinger describes the judge’s decision to undercut the prosecution’s recommended sentencing as a “rare step”, he revealed it is not the first time Mr Chun has spared convicted police officers jail time in favour of probation.

One such case involved two NYPD officers convicted for having sex with a teenager in custody in exchange for her freedom, with the New York Post reporting Mr Chun questioned the victim’s “credibility” and said that “both sides” had been guilty of crimes relating to the “bribe”.

In another instance, he allowed a former NYPD officer who twice shot a man in the face and then tampered with the evidence to walk free.

Chun should be yanked from the bench and charged with aiding and abetting.

  1. this guy gives judges a bad name all over, because who knows the reasoning for their leniency or their sentencing habits. Cops get a free pass with this judge? That’s what the rest of us are thinking. How long til a fundamentalist judge lets off some fundamentalist defendant because they share the same beliefs and “they’re a good person because of their beliefs,” no matter the crime? We can’t accept that. Cops need to be held to the law when they break it, not skipped above it. Cops and judges can’t be above the law they’re supposed to uphold.
