Tacopina Successfully Defends High-Profile New York City Rape Case

  1. 1. Tacopina Successfully Defends HighProfile New York City Rape Case
  2. 2. •Despite a large quantity of evidence presented by the prosecution, a legal team led by criminal defense attorney Joe Tacopina successfully defended a New York City police officer accused of raping a young fashion executive. The case initially caused public outrage, and news coverage following the verdict stated that many had believed the officers would easily be convicted.
  3. 3. •The officers received a call to help the woman, who was extremely drunk. They were accused of accompanying her into her apartment and raping her. The officers were convicted of three counts of official misconduct, which stemmed from the fact that they entered the young woman’s apartment.
  4. 4. •Following a two-month trial, the jury reached a verdict of not guilty on charges of rape, burglary, and falsifying business records. One juror stated afterward that he did not think there was sufficient evidence to prove that the officers had raped the woman and that her inability to remember the event was problematic for the case.
