Cop Pleads Guilty After Unnecessary Stop-and-Frisk

12.20.13 Andy Cush

An NYPD officer who wrongfully stopped and frisked Brownsville resident Jasper Boyd outside his home in 2011 plead guilty to disciplinary charges yesterday. The administrative trial marks the second time the Civilian Complaint Review Board, an NYPD oversight group, has prosecuted cops for unlawful stop-and-frisks since it was given the authority to do so earlier this year.

The Daily News explains the nature of the 2011 stop.

Boyd, who was heading out to pick up his 7-year-old son from school, showed [Officer Wilson Gonzalez] identification and said he had just gone inside his apartment to get an umbrella because it was raining.

Gonzalez said he wanted to run Boyd’s identification to see if there were any warrants for his arrest. When Boyd protested, Gonzalez frisked him, the independent NYPD watchdog group charged.

Gonzalez later gave Boyd a disorderly conduct summons after Boyd complained about the stop.

If commissioner Ray Kelly holds up the decision, Gonzalez will lose 15 days pay. “I’m happy with the outcome,” Boyd told the News. “I was outraged.”
