A city housing cop was convicted Wednesday of falsifying reports in a 2012 drug bust after prosecutors confronted him with a smoking-gun video that proved he was lying.
A Manhattan Supreme Court jury found NYPD Officer Isaias Alicea, 29, guilty of 10 felony counts of offering false instrument for filing and one misdemeanor charge of official misconduct.
A seven-year veteran of the force, Alicea faces a maximum sentence of four years in prison when he faces sentencing July 12.
[...]Not only did surveillance video show no illegal drug exchange occurred, the two men arrested never even came in contact with each other inside the lobby, officials said.
