Brooklyn Detective Convicted of Planting Drugs
Brooklyn Detective Jason Arbeeny has been convicted by the Judge at his bench trial on charges he planted drugs on innocent people. Isolated instance? Hardly.
During the trial, prosecutors described the corruption within the Police Department drug units that Detective Arbeeny worked for; one former detective, who did not know the defendant, testified that officers in those units often planted drugs on innocent people.
Arbeeny was convicted of "falsifying business records, official misconduct and offering a false instrument for filing."
