BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- The ex-cops accused of raping a teen asked a judge to dismiss the case against them Wednesday, right in front of the alleged victim.
The two disgraced cops insist that the September 2017 encounter was consensual, but the teen, Anna Chambers, and her attorney, call it rape. Recent legislation supports her assessment. It was passed because of her situation, to help prevent cases like hers.
The ex-cops, Edward Martins and Richard Hall, entered the courtroom around 2:30 p.m. Thursday, followed momentarily by Chambers, for a hearing.
“Being here, seeing them is disgusting,” Chambers told PIX11 News.
The hearing had been called because a judge who'd been asked by both prosecutors and the officers' attorneys to appoint a special prosecutor in the case had declined to do so.
