Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg, Jr., together with the Legal Aid Society, New York County Defender Services, Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem and the Assigned Counsel Plan today moved to vacate 188 misdemeanor convictions tied to eight New York City Police Department officers previously convicted of crimes related to their law enforcement duties.

"The collateral consequences of a conviction are significant. The stigma lasts a lifetime and prevents people from finding a job, going back to school or securing housing. My hope is that by vacating these convictions, we can help the individuals impacted move on with their lives and fully participate in society".

...The officers – all of whom played a material role in these convictions – include:

Nicholas Mina: convicted of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Fourth Degree, Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the Second Degree, Criminal Sale of a Firearm in the Third Degree, Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree and Conspiracy in the Fourth Degree for stealing and selling guns from a precinct house. He was sentenced to a total of 15 ½ years.
