NEW YORK (AP) – A police officer has been convicted of grand larceny and other charges in a case that led to the NYPD’s ticket-fixing investigation.
Prosecutors announced the conviction of 46-year-old Jose Ramos on Monday. They say he turned his two Bronx barbershops into a front for drug dealing and stolen goods.

Ramos still faces other charges, including conspiring to kill a witness. Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available. He’s to be sentenced Dec. 1.

The ticket-fixing investigation against more than a dozen officers has sparked a debate over the informal practice of police squashing tickets or minor summonses as favors for friends and relatives.

A lieutenant in the NYPD’s internal affairs bureau was the first to be tried. She was convicted of leaking information about the investigation to fellow officers.

    What a total disgrace. That is why the FDNY fights to keep their ranks from hiring crap. This man is a disgrace to all of the honorable men and women of the NYPD who protect us everyday. It is a miscarriage of justice that they pursued charges against the other 15 cops who where allegedly fixing tickets for members of the community. A decades long practice since taminy hall. These 15 cops who are being maliciously prosecuted by the Bronx DA’s office.Is the Baptist minister from 125street or a decades long congressman or the councilmen that where caught on the wiretaps asking for preferential treatment for their constituents being subpoenaed or brought up on corruption charges?. oh I forgot they get preferential treatment due to being political hacks and part of a protected species. What a total disgrace.
