It is not Illegal for NYPD Cops to have Sex with Handcuffed Women they Arrest. One Politician is Trying to Change that

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017
A New York City politician is trying to make it illegal for cops to have sex with citizens they arrest, insisting that a citizen in custody is incapable of consenting.
Currently, it is only a violation of departmental policy, which means if a cop rapes a woman in handcuffs, then claims it was consensual, he may end up suspended with pay.
Or at worst, charged with a misdemeanor of official misconduct, which can mean anything and everything.
Councilman Mark Treyger (D-Brooklyn) is drafting the legislation after two NYPD cops were accused of raping a handcuffed 18-year-old woman last month, then claiming it

NYPD Cops Accused of Raping Handcuffed Woman Claim it was Consensual

Friday, September 29th, 2017
An 18-year-old woman said a pair of New York City cops handcuffed her before raping her, including forcing her to perform oral sex on them.
But the cops claim she consented to the sexual acts.
However, it seems highly unlikely that a handcuffed woman can consent to sex with two authority figures threatening to jail her for drugs, which possibly include prescription drugs and/or marijuana.
“There was zero consent,” the woman’s attorney Michael David told the New York Post. “The cops were over 6 feet tall. She’s very petite, like 5-2 and maybe 100 pounds. There’s nothing she could do.”
