Bronx Prosecutor Who Allegedly Escaped Drunk Driving Arrests Gets The Axe

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One New York City prosecutor’s law violating lifestyle just got to be too much for her to keep her job.

Since the Bronx district attorney, Rob Johnson, launched his war on ticket fixing in the NYPD, prosecuting dozens of police officers, assistant D.A. Jennifer Troiano had become something of an embarrassment to that office.

As a Bronx prosecutor, she had managed to squirm out of two drunk driving arrests in 2004 and 2006 and those tickets disappeared as if by magic, and she kept working as a prosecutor.

Then in 2010, with the ticket fixing investigation heating up, she was busted for reckless and drunk driving in connection with a three-care pile-up on the Major Deegan Expressway.

Now, that assistant D.A. has gotten the axe in the Bronx and a special prosecutor from Manhattan is handling the case against her.

    I thought prosecutors were exempt from all laws (just like cops). What changed?

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    How is it that 12 of the 9/11 terrorists could live for 2 weeks just 2 miles from NSA head quarters in Maryland.This after several of them had taken flight simulator lessons on Jumbo jet trainers and several of them where on State department terror watch lists.
    There is evidence that employees from DoD, CIA and DOJ accepted bribes from Al Quida.
    If DoJ and DoD employees where more concerned with doing their jobs than enriching themselves by stealing from suspects and taking bribes, then there might have been more a chance that 9/11 had never happened.
