From the Daily News:
Lawyers for embattled state Sen. Hiram Monserrate want a Queens judge to quash his indictment for allegedly beating up a girlfriend because one of the grand jurors was a cop in the precinct that investigated him.
An officer in Jamaica's 105th Precinct who testified before the grand jury told Monserrate's lawyers he recognized one of his colleagues sitting in the jury box.
The officer, identified only as "Reefer," warned prosecutors about the potential conflict, but was "told not to worry about it," one of Monserrate's private investigators said in a sworn affidavit.
Last time a felony indictment against a Queens pol was challenged, it was dismissed by a judge and the DA accepted a plea deal and never refiled. Is this deja vu?
