New York police officer’s family sue after he was fired over alleged assault
- by admin
NEW YORK — New York City police officer James Doyon was fired last month after he allegedly assaulted a woman who was in the middle of the night, and he was charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to court documents filed Monday.
Doyon, 31, faces up to six years in prison when he is sentenced March 15, the documents state.
He was fired by the New York City Police Department on Monday after his arrest on domestic battery charges in December, the NYPD said in a statement.
Doyle allegedly grabbed the arm of the woman and forced her into his car while the woman was asleep, police said in the statement.
The woman had left her apartment in the West Village, and was sleeping on her bed in the city’s Fulton Houses neighborhood, according the statement of facts.
Darryl Doyons lawyer, Joseph J. Conte, said he plans to file a motion for a mistrial.
The allegations against Doynons partner, Officer Matthew Lazzara, are under investigation, police officials said.
The police department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
