Bronx judge dismisses rape case against NYPD cop-pastor Vladimir Sosa
The case against the Bronx cop-clergyman accused of having sex with a teenage girl he met at his church youth group was dropped entirely Wednesday.
Officer Vladimir Sosa, 38, a seven-year NYPD veteran and affiliate of the Iglesia Metodista Libre El Remanente Church on E. 180th St., had been facing charges of third-degree rape, sexual misconduct and child endangerment.
The 46th Precinct officer was in high spirits as he strode out of the Bronx courtroom after a judge granted prosecutors’ request to dismiss the case.
“The community still believes who I am, and they have absolutely no credible belief of what (authorities say) happened,” Sosa, 38, told the Daily News after the dismissal.
