"188 Convictions Tied to Discredited N.Y.P.D. Officers Are Tossed Out"

From The New York Times:

The move follows similar actions by prosecutors across the city in a sweeping effort to review cases that relied on police officers who were convicted of official misconduct and other crimes related to their work.

In September, the Brooklyn prosecutor’s office announced that it was seeking to dismiss 378 low-level criminal convictions that relied on 13 former police officers who were convicted of crimes. As of Thursday, all the convictions — 47 felonies and 331 misdemeanors — had been vacated, a spokesman for the office said.
