The NYPD has fired Brooklyn cop Monty Green after finding him guilty of promoting prostitution.
The alleged ‘pimp cop’ was dismissed from the force after a departmental trial, according to the New York Daily News.
Green’s lawyer Eric Sanders confirmed that Green is “going to sue in federal court,” and that “the dismissal is baseless.”
The Internal Affairs Bureau first looked into Green’s outside of work activities in 2009. He was recorded on wiretap talking to pimp Jason “China” Marshalleck about “pimping prostitutes,” NYPD prosecutor Vivian Joo reported at Green’s departmental trial.
Sources told NY Daily News that in 2009 the District Attorney did not file criminal charges against Green because several prostitutes were afraid to testify.
Green has been officially charged with promoting prostitution, as well as menacing for an unrelated 2009 incident in which Green allegedly pulled a gun on Shara Whorley after she declined his advances.
Sanders claims there is no case against his client.
“You don’t terminate people on speculation,” he said.
Sanders also added that Whorley was just looking to get Green in trouble.
