Sergeant Raymond Stukes, formerly assigned to the 81st Precinct files suit after being falsely arrested and accused of perjury and related offenses during an Internal Affairs Bureau ‘Sting.’ Unbeknownst to Sergeant Stukes, he was the subject of a criminal investigation because of an arrest that he verified on or about September 3, 2009.
Sergeant Stukes was arrested at the Kings County District Attorney’s Office and charged with Offering a False Instrument for Filing 1st Degree, Perjury 2nd Degree, Offering A False Instrument for Filing 2nd Degree, Falsifying Business Records 2nd Degree, Official Misconduct 1st Degree and Perjury 3rd Degree.
On or about November 14, 2011, Sergeant Stukes learned through his attorney that Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes called Sergeant Benevolent Association Vice President Robert Ganley and said “We know that Sergeant Stukes DID NOT sign any of the paperwork. Come down so that we can get this done.” The very next day, Sergeant Stukes appeared before Supreme Court Justice John P. Walsh and the Kings County Assistant District Attorney requested that the ‘charges be dismissed for lack of evidence.’ There was no apology for ruining Sergeant Stukes’s reputation.
