Trial Begins in Police Brutality Case
Opening arguments got underway Tuesday in the civil rights and witness tampering trial of Sleepy Hollow Police Detective Jose Quinoy. Quinoy is accused of punching and kicking two men in two separate incidents who had been handcuffed and under the control of other officers.
Detective Quinoy, who has been suspended without pay, is accused of violating the civil rights of the two men.
Earlier this year, federal officials alleged that in April 2008, Quinoy tampered with a witness involved in the case.
If found guilty of the witness tampering charge, Quinoy faces a maximum of 20 years in prison. He's already facing 10 years in prison on each count of the original brutality indictment.
