As NY1 News revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Jonathan Dienst's April 4, 1995 coverage of the verdict in the Morgue Boys case, a major scandal that rocked Brooklyn's 73rd precinct where officers were accused of stealing drugs and money and making false arrests.
NY1 FOLLOW-UP: The three officers would be acquitted of the civil rights charges later that year. Goodman was fired after a departmental trial. Mistretta and Sanfillipo were acquitted of departmental charges and returned to active duty in 1997.
