From the Daily News:
A QUEENS rape victim who was locked up for robberies she didn’t commit is suing city and Long Island cops for falling for her attacker’s “preposterous hoax” of a revenge plot.
In a federal lawsuit, Seemona Sumasar claims NYPD cops protected her attacker, Jerry Ramrattan, because he was secretly funneling them information about other crimes while working as an informant.
Ramrattan relied on cop connections two years before the Sumasar attack to help him get another rape victim to drop charges against him, the suit claims.
Two weeks ago, a Queens jury found Ramrattan, 39, guilty of raping Sumasar, a former Wall Street analyst, in her Far Rockaway apartment in 2009. The jury also convicted Ramrattan of perjury and conspiracy for concocting the twisted tale that landed Sumasar — a single mom — in a Long Island lockup for seven months.
