Officers Kenneth Moreno And Franklin Mata Previously Accused Of Verbal Abuse

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — The two New York City Police Department officers acquitted of raping a woman in 2008 were previously accused of verbally abusing another woman earlier that year.

The then 21-year-old woman filed a complaint against officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata, accusing them of using abusive and sexist language when she tried to report a theft in August 2008.

The Civilian Complaint Review Board substantiated the complaint against Mata, 1010 WINS’ Terry Sheridan reported.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly responded to the news Wednesday saying that any information regarding the two officers would have been “turned over to the prosecution.”

“I don’t believe this is new information to the prosecution,” Kelly said.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office had no comment on why they did not use the information at the rape trial of the previously accused police officers.

Both Moreno and Mata were acquitted, but immediately fired from the police force.
