YouTubeA Bronx cop has been indicted on 67 counts related to paying a teenage girl for sex and recording the encounter, seven months after police raided his apartment.
The authorities seized Officer Raul Olmeda’s computer, multiple external hard drives, his phone, and a video camera, reportedly obtaining recordings of his sexual encounters.
Nevertheless, the New York Police Department (NYPD) kept Olmeda on the job, where he was able to keep tabs on the Internal Affairs investigation of him.
