BROOKLYN - The fifth man charged in the fatal shooting of NYPD Detective Peter Figoski has been found guilty.
Jurors convicted Kevin Santos of second-degree murder and robbery. Prosecutors accused him of kicking down a door and waiting in a car during the home burglary that led to the 2011 shooting.
Nelson Morales was also convicted last week of murder and burglary in Figoski's death, and triggerman Lamont Pride was previously sentenced to 45 years to life in prison. The accused getaway driver was cleared of all charges, and another man struck a plea deal promising to testify against the others.
Santos' attorney says his client was disappointed, and felt that the jury would vindicate him. The attorney says they plan on pursuing an appeal.
Santos is scheduled to be sentenced on June 20. He faces 25 years to life in prison.
