Two former city police officers convicted of official misconduct in a 2008 rape case reportedly are expected to be sent to jail tomorrow.

The Daily News says Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata are due to turn themselves in to the Correction Department.

Both men were charged with rape after they helped a drunken 27-year-old woman to her East Village apartment in December 2008.

Moreno admitted to lying down with the woman on her bed but said he only held her.

Mata said he fell asleep on the couch.

Jurors found them not guilty of rape but said they violated police guidelines.

Moreno was sentenced to a year behind bars and Mata got a 60-day sentence.

The News says Moreno's lawyer will try to get a stay of his sentence.
