NY1 VIDEO: On May 6, 1999, Abner Louima took the stand to testify how he was allegedly sodomized by four accused police officers in a stationhouse bathroom. NY1's Jeanine Ramirez filed this report on that day.

NY1 FOLLOW-UP: Office Justin Volpe would plead guilty just weeks later and he is still serving a 30-year sentence. Officer Charles Schwarz was found guilty, his conviction was later overturned, but then he went back to prison after being convicted on a perjury charge and served more than four years total. Today, his attorney says he lives in the city and works as a carpenter. Louima settled his lawsuit with the city for $8.7 million.
