A gay NYPD lieutenant found guilty of sexually harassing two sergeants retired Wednesday, but vowed to keep fighting to clear his name.
Lt. Kieran Crowe, a 23-year-veteran, was suspended 60 days without pay for rubbing his crotch, simulating masturbation and wiggling his tongue at the male sergeants in his Equal Employment Opportunity office at Police Headquarters.
Crowe admitted at his department hearing that he may have scratched his groin area, but said it was because he suffered from jock itch.[More]
"Does it make sense that this gentle, homosexual man would seek to coerce and seduce two large, burly heterosexuals?" Koshetz said.That would be stereotyping, Ms. Koshetz. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
