NYC May Still Be Liable For Detective Who Sexually Assaulted Woman

A newly public ruling shows that New York City still faces claims from a woman who was sexually assaulted by a detective.

L.C. claims that New York City Police Detective Oscar Sandino used a search warrant to enter her Queens apartment on Feb. 16, 2008.

Sandino allegedly ordered a strip search in Sandino's bedroom, and then threatened her on a car ride to the station that she could lose custody of her children unless she agreed to be "bedded."
