In the verdict returned Tuesday, jurors found 30-year-old Lennard Ryner of West Haverstraw, N.Y., and 40-year-old Gabriel Mantilla of Jersey City — who no longer serve on the force — and NJ Transit equally responsible for what happened to the Old Bridge woman, who was 38 at the time.
Ryner and Mantilla were convicted of official misconduct in connection with the July 2006 incident at Liberty State Park and served nearly nine months in prison. But they were never charged with sex crimes.
The woman's lawsuit claimed that the officers threatened to charge her with drunken driving if she didn't have sex with them.
