Doctor: Mineo's injuries mesh with his claims

BROOKLYN - A doctor testified Tuesday that Michael Mineo had injuries consistent with claims he made against an NYPD officer.

Dr. Syed Ahmed said when he examined Mineo, it appeared someone had sodomized the Brooklyn man with an object. Officer Richard Kern, who is accused of sodomizing Mineo, is charged with aggravated sexual abuse and assault.

He is on trial with two other officers, Alex Cruz and Andrew Morales, who are accused of covering up the attack. They are charged with hindering prosecution and official misconduct.

All the officers have denied any wrongdoing.
