NYPD officer convicted of grand larceny; case led to ticket-fixing investigation


NEW YORK — A police officer has been convicted of grand larceny and other charges in a case that led to the NYPD's ticket-fixing investigation.

Prosecutors announced the conviction of 46-year-old Jose Ramos on Monday. They say he turned his two Bronx barbershops into a front for drug dealing and stolen goods.

Ramos still faces other charges, including conspiring to kill a witness. Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available. He's to be sentenced Dec. 1.

The ticket-fixing investigation against more than a dozen officers has sparked a debate over the informal practice of police squashing tickets or minor summonses as favors for friends and relatives.

A lieutenant in the NYPD's internal affairs bureau was the first to be tried. She was convicted of leaking information about the investigation to fellow officers.
