Ex-NYPD officer arraigned on charges of accessory, racketeering
A former NYPD officer was arraigned Wednesday on charges of accessory after the fact to murder - obstructing a federal gang investigation - and racketeering conspiracy.
Mohegan Lake’s Gina Mestre faces those charges for her participation with members of the Shooting Boys Gang.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says Mestre allegedly provided confidential information to that gang about a federal grand jury investigation. She is accused of leaking the identity of a witness to gang members and assisting a gang leader in fleeing from the U.S. after committing murder.
Mestre was an NYPD police officer from July 2013 to May 2022, assigned to the 52nd Precinct's Public Safety Unit.
