NYC: “Former NYPD detective who framed innocent man in Queens crack bust gets three years probation”

A former decorated NYPD detective convicted of perjury got a slap on the wrist Wednesday — sentenced by a Queens judge to three years probation for trumping up a bogus drug case against an innocent man.

Judge Michael Aloise also fined Detective Kevin Desormeau $500 for the 2014 false arrest.

Desormeau said he arrested Roosevelt McCoy after spotting him dealing crack in Jamaica, Queens, but the case collapsed in March 2016 after the suspect’s relative found surveillance video showing McCoy playing pool at the time he was allegedly selling dope.

McCoy spent 52 days in Rikers Island before Desormeau’s lies were revealed.
