The ex-NYPD Law enforcement officer Raul Olmeda was charged of videotaping his sex-related experiences with the 15-year-old girl on at the very least 5 events. He was challenged with these video clips by detectives and also the teenager admitted to the acts. These facts were unassailable, yet Olmeda was acquitted.
Instead of facing the moment in prison for the felony rape charges, Olmeda was convicted of 2 minor misdemeanors of official misconduct and witness tampering. The witness meddling stems from the reality that Olmeda informed the woman not to affirm versus him in court. The official misconduct fee was caused hereafter police was caught accessing NYPD computer systems to see what proof internal events had versus him.
Extremely, he was just found guilty of the actual charges which permitted him to silence his victim and give him an upper hand during the trial. It is utter insanity. The two misdemeanors hardly carry approximately a year in jail.
Much more outrageous is the reality that his lawyer had the audacity to refer to Olmeda as a “target.” You actually can not make this up.
“From the start, Mr. Olmeda was willing to take duty for his actions, however he was not ready to beg guilty to charges where he was the sufferer of a shakedown,” claimed Peter Brill, Olmeda’s lawyer. “We say thanks to the court for being able to tell the difference.”
The case against Olmeda began in 2017 when his sufferer, a 15-year-old girl, was apprehended for prostitution. Since youngsters can not grant sex with an adult, the concept of charging her with hooking is incorrect from the start. However, throughout her apprehension, the sufferer told investigators that Olmeda had bought her for sex on numerous occasions.
When authorities performed a search warrant on the officer’s home as well as computer, they discovered the video clips and also photos on his computer and also phone. When he was confronted with the videos, he rejected to recognize that he recognized the youngster. He likewise declined to identify his bed room and living-room furniture which were seen in the pictures.
Amazingly enough, the court bought this rejection. However it becomes worse.
In spite of the presence of the photos and also videos located on his gadgets of a youngster having sex– a truth no one contests– Olmeda was not found guilty of youngster pornography.
Also, despite asserting to investigators that he did not recognize the 15-year-old child, police located one more video in which he was telling the woman to “avoid” as Internal Matters investigated him.
“Technically you are a minor,” Olmeda told the teenager, according to court records. So much for not recognizing her.
Even more troubling is the reality that after the preliminary raid found all the videos, Olmeda was not fired for 7 months. This moment enabled him to maintain tabs on the Internal Affairs investigation of him. Prosecutors assert that Olmeda was also able to have sex with the young adult two even more times after the raid.
Specifically just how a jury would certainly acquit a male, particularly offered the video as well as photo evidence recording his criminal activities, is a tragic mystery. Now, however, the citizens of New york city can rest assured that he will likely strike once more as he deals with less than a year behind bars.
This potential propensity to strike again was additionally shown by the various other documents detectives supposedly discovered on his computer system named “the listing,” in which he made a creepy PowerPoint presentation of various other females with whom he has purportedly paid to have sex– all while his fiance battled cancer … a real stand up person without a doubt.
When a police officer can be caught on video having sex with a kid 5 times as well as leave the fees for it, we have a major problem in this country. Olmeda’s acquittal reveals us simply how blinded by the badge some people can become. Offered how commonly law enforcement agent are accused of horrifying sex-related crimes, a number of which are against children, this blindness needs to have been lifted long ago. However, going by the absence of time behind bars they are continually given, we can assume that it is still to life as well as well.

In a few short weeks, North Carolina basketball practice will begin, Late Night with Roy will take place, and the 2018-19 UNC basketball season will be underway. The Tar Heels’ first game is a Nov. 6 matchup at Wofford, followed by a Nov. 9 contest with Elon at the Phoenix’s new Schar Center.
In preparation for the season, Carolina began its offseason training and condition program last Thursday, Sept. 6. Adam Lucas of GoHeels.com documented a hill sprint and slide workout in the Meadowmont neighborhood. Senior forward Cameron Johnson, who had been sidelined following hip surgery, was a full participant and fellow seniors Luke Maye and Kenny Williams were consistently at the front of the pack during the timed sprints.
The hill runs are challenging. “Each player had to complete twelve 60-meter uphill sprints in a prescribed amount of time (perimeter players had to make it up the hill in ten seconds, post players 11 seconds) with a minute of rest between each sprint,” Lucas wrote.
The focus is power and endurance over a period of time. It’s about maintaining explosive movements while fatigued, something that directly translates to the game of basketball.
When push came to shove and the players were offered a reward for winning the 11th sprint (skipping the 12th sprint) the talented and highly touted UNC freshmen stepped up. Coby White won the perimeter group’s 11th sprint and Nassir Little took the 11th dash for the big men.
Lucas also detailed arecent combination sprint conditioning workout on flat ground that included 100-, 200-, and 300-yard sprints for time with little rest in between. One thing you always notice about UNC teams is despite the pace at which they play on offense and the intensity they bring on defense they are never out of shape. That is because of the work they put in during September and October, led by longtime UNC strength and conditioning coach Jonas Sahratian.
The UNC social media accounts have documented some of the work put in by the players over the last few days. Check it out below:
