Opening arguments begin in Mineo civil case

Opening arguments began today in the civil trial against four NYPD officers accused of sexually assaulting Michael Mineo and then allegedly covering up the crime

BROOKLYN - Opening arguments began today in the civil trial against four NYPD officers accused of sexually assaulting Michael Mineo and then allegedly covering up the crime back in 2008.

A jury found officers Richard Kern, Alex Cruz, and Andrew Morales not guilty of sexual assault and conspiracy during the criminal trial.

Mineo then filed a civil lawsuit against the officers and one other officer that was not charged in the criminal case.

Mineo is suing the officers for up to $440 million. His attorney says he believes his client's second chance at justice will be a better one.
