NYPD Officer Convicted of Faking Report

A New York City police officer has been convicted of official misconduct for faking paperwork to conceal his involvement in a wrongful search and arrest of two men.

Isaias Alicea was convicted Wednesday by a jury on 10 counts. He became an NYPD officer in 2006, and was assigned to the NYPD's housing bureau. He stopped and arrested two men in Harlem last year, and then later falsely told his supervisors he saw them in a drug transaction. But surveillance images showed no transaction occurred and the charges against the men were dropped.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. says Alicea betrayed the public's trust.

He will be sentenced July 12. He will be fired from the department based on felony conviction.
