Cop Forces Woman To Strip, Masturbates

NEW BRUNSWICK — On a hot July day in 2011, Sgt. Samuel Woody, a 12-year veteran of the Plainfield Police Department assigned to the patrol division, arrested a 27-year-old city woman on charges of theft and burglary.

After she was booked at police headquarters, she was released on a summons to appear in court.

As she left headquarters on East Fourth Street, Woody told the woman to follow him into a nearby Madison Avenue lot.

Once there, Woody, threatened the woman with a five-year prison term unless she took off some of her clothes. Woody, still in his police uniform, masturbated as she did so.

Unbeknown to Woody, the woman was surreptitiously taping the incident.

In December, a jury convicted Woody, 43, of second-degree official misconduct and fourth-degree criminal sexual assault. Today, a Superior Court judge in New Brunswick sentenced him to six years in prison.

Under the terms set by Judge Alberto Rivas, Woody will serve at least five years before he is eligible for parole.

    I bet $1,000 that cop stays behind bars less than 25% of the sentence claimed in that article. This is always what happens locally when I check old news items.

    I wish someone would publish a study of “time sentenced” to “time served” ratio comparison for corrupt officials compared to us regular livestock.
