NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors say an officer has been indicted on charges that he offered to help a woman get a job with the New York Police Department in exchange for sex.
Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson says Delfin Lantigua was arraigned Wednesday on charges of bribe-receiving, coercion and official misconduct.
The defendant allegedly contacted the job applicant on Facebook in February and told her he could get her hired.
Thompson says the woman contacted police and agreed to wear a wire.
Lantigua also allegedly demanded $1,000 in addition to sex.
The DA says the woman agreed to meet Lantigua at a motel on March 13. That's where he was arrested.
Information on his attorney was not immediately available.
