An NYPD Undercover Convicted In Corruption Trial

Home Brooklyn Life An NYPD Undercover Convicted In Corruption Trial

Detective Jason Arbeeny was being tried on several charges of corruption in relation to his  involvement in Brooklyn Narcotics Squad alleged planting of drugs as evidence.

In a bench trial, Judge Gustin Reichbach of the Brooklyn Supreme Court found him guilty on eight counts: two counts of first degree falsification of business records,  two other counts of second degree falsification of business records, two  counts of offering false instruments, and two counts of official misconduct. This means that he was convicted for covering up crimes and knowingly submitting statements containing false information to the NYPD.

He wasn’t, however, convicted for tampering with evidence (destroying, or concealing physical evidence with the intent to affect the outcome of a criminal investigation or court proceeding), nor found to have been involved in a conspiracy.

Keep an eye out for Tracy Jarrett’s full report on the trial, later this afternoon.
