Teen testifies against New Rochelle cop in statutory rape case
There was plenty of drama and tears in a Westchester courtroom Friday as a teenage girl accusing a New Rochelle police officer of statutory rape and sodomy told her side of the story.Donald Feola finds himself on the other side of law now as the prosecution contends he used and abused his power as a police officer to seduce the girl into a sexual relationship when she was 16-years-old. Feola says he never placed an inappropriate hand on the girl. He says she made up the charges after he turned down her advances. The 45-year-old officer has been suspended from the force.The teenage girl will resume her testimony on Monday morning and jurors could get the case by Tuesday. If convicted on both charges, Feola could get up to four years in state prison.
