Locally born ex cop on trial for allegedly raping teacher

NEW YORK.- Dominican-born policeman Michael Peña, accused of raping a 29 year old teacher at gunpoint, is standing trial in the NY State Supreme Court, where he denies the charges on Friday.

In the second day of the proceeding his lawyer Efraín Savitt said his defendant, since fired from the Police Department, admits only “to having harassed” the teacher, but never of raping her.

He said there’s no forensic DNA evidence that implicates Peña, then in the 33rd Precinct, in having forced relations with the victim, but the teacher has in tears reiterated her accusation under oath.

She said Peña forced her to have oral sex, who pointed his pistol and forced her to have sex.
