NEW YORK (AP) — A former police officer acquitted of raping a drunken woman he helped get home has sued her and New York City.
His lawyer told the Daily News that Kenneth Moreno filed the lawsuit to recover monetary damages and restore his reputation.
The News reports the woman now lives in San Francisco and couldn’t be reached for comment.
A city Law Department spokeswoman said the allegations will be reviewed when city lawyers receive the papers.
Moreno and his partner were convicted of official misconduct in 2011 for repeatedly returning to the woman’s apartment while telling dispatchers they were elsewhere.
He served nine months of a one-year sentence.
