New York, NY — It has been nearly two years since then 18-year-old Anna Chambers accused two on-duty NYPD officers of raping her in the back of a police van on the night of September 15th, 2017. As emphatically as she claims she was raped and did not consent to having sex with two police officers, she asserts not only have the police continued to attempt to intimidate her but the very justice system she looked to for help was set up to help the alleged rapists. Now, her claims have been proven correct.

Both of the officers, Eddie Martins and Richard Hall had faced up to 25 years in prison on the original rape and kidnapping charges. However, in March, they had all those charges dropped. Because the system is set up in a way to protect predator police officers, the charges were reduced to bribery and official misconduct. Then, on Thursday, despite the Brooklyn district attorney’s ardent opposition to the sweetheart deal, both cops dodged jail time for their crimes.

“These defendants engaged in a shocking abuse of power which they finally acknowledged,” said Brooklyn chief prosecutor Eric Gonzalez, according to the NY Daily News. “While I would have preferred to see them serve prison time, they are no longer members of our police department and with (their) pleas are convicted felons.”

“It’s just outrageous,” said Chambers’ lawyer, Michael David. “It was a clear-cut case. She was kidnapped. There was DNA evidence,” he said.

After Chambers’ case garnered national attention, New York lawmakers were forced to pass a bill last year banning cops from having sex with people they arrest. Up until last April, cops in New York could have sex with people in custody, so long as they claimed it was consensual. And that’s exactly what happened in this case.

Both officers kidnapped Chambers in 2017 for allegedly possessing marijuana. The cops conveniently let all of her friends go, and kept only the tiny teen girl.
