17 NYPD Cops Indicted in Ticket Fixing Scandal

In New York City, there are two sets of rules: one if you "know somebody," and another for everyone else.

That's the conclusion of a Bronx grand jury which indicted 17 uniformed New York City police officers earlier this week for fixing traffic and parking tickets for friends and family.

The investigation by the NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau has also seen at least one uniformed officer attempt suicide.

Penalties could range from no-jail agreements (perhaps if defense lawyers can get charges reduced to misdemeanors) to several years in prison for felony charges. The formal charges and defendants have not been announced publicly.

This police misconduct hurts the Department's credibility and threatens to affect numerous other criminal cases in which the indicted officers were the arresting officer, investigating officer or supervising officer.

More developments should occur Monday.
