“As alleged in the indictment, Ricardo Cruciani is charged with violating this trust by exploiting the power imbalance inherent in the doctor-patient relationship and sexually assaulting half a dozen women in his care."
“As alleged in this case, the defendants worked in concert to maintain a violent monopoly on the city’s towing business, in the kind of industrywide racket that harkens back to an earlier era."
“The Cold Case Project’s systematic review of dozens of cold case homicides led to the indictment of Pedro Jimenez, who allegedly committed this brutal act of gun violence before spending nearly three decades living in hiding. We are committed to seeking justice for murder victims and their families, no matter how old the crime.”
“These shootings tragically ended the lives of two young men and terrified residents and neighbors of the East River housing complex. I hope this conviction and sentence bring some closure to the victims’ families and the East Harlem community.”
