A Gap fashion executive, who accused two New York cops of rape, is seen walking into her East Village apartment, escorted by the officers, in previously unseen surveillance footage. The woman alleges that one of the cops raped her while the other stood watch nearby.
It all began late one night when a taxicab driver dialed 911 to report that the woman in the backseat of his cab was practically passed out from, presumably, drinking too heavily:
The driver later testified that she was too drunk to get out of the cab by herself.
So then, two cops were sent to the scene: NYPD's Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata. They walked her up to her flat.
What happened next is the subject of a $60 million lawsuit against New York City.
Prosectors claim that the officers helped the woman into the apartment and later returned--at which point, prosecutors claim, Morena raped the woman while Mata stood watch. Over the span of about four hours, the footage shows the officers entering and leaving the building three separate times.
But the question is: how drunk was she? Drunk enough to not consent to sex? But sober enough to wake up during the alleged rape to remember it? Drunk enough to be passed out in a cab? But sober enough to appear animated and conversational in the clip below? That's for a jury to decide.
