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.
