Ex-NYC Detective Gets 15 Years for Rape

Ex-NYC detective gets 15 years for Greenburgh rape
The Journal News by Shawn Cohen - March 12, 2010

WHITE PLAINS, NY — A retired New York City police detective who slipped a sleeping pill to a woman he met in a bar, then raped her at a Greenburgh motel, was sentenced today to 15 years in prison, the Westchester District Attorney's Office said. Jose Arroyo, 47, faced up to 25 years after he was convicted in November of two felony counts of rape: for sexually assaulting a physically helpless person who was uncapable of consent, and facilitating a sex crime using drugs. He was also found guilty of felony assault, but acquitted of kidnapping charges. Arroyo slipped zolpidem — the active ingredient in the sleeping pill Ambien — into the drink of a 31-year-old Texas woman at Doyle's Pub in the Bronx in November 2008. He took the unconscious woman to the Alexander Motel on Tarrytown Road, where he had sex with her and took 16 photos of her nude body. He then left for his job as a bouncer at a White Plains bar, where he showed her driver's license to male co-workers as a "before" picture and the nude photographs as "after" pictures. Arroyo, an ex-Marine who used to train and recruit security guards, insisted that he never drugged the woman and that they had consensual sex. SPCOHEN@LOHUD.COM
