A former NYPD sergeant was convicted Tuesday of throwing semen on a female co-worker’s leg at the police department headquarters.
Michael Iscenko, 56, was found guilty by a Manhattan jury on one count of sex abuse in the third degree — a misdemeanor that could place the ex-police sergeant behind bars for up to three months.
The incident occurred in January 2015, when Iscenko hurled his ejaculate at a 61-year-old civilian administrator as she was returning from the bathroom at One Police Plaza. Prosecutors said the seminal fluid was found on the victim’s calf and in her shoes worn that day.
Michael Horn, Iscenko’s attorney, argued that the DNA tests conducted did not prove the fluid was semen and claimed it was saliva, the New York Postreports.
“I felt something cold and wet behind my leg,” the now 63-year-old victim testified, according to the local paper. “I turned to look and saw a creamy substance. I saw Mike behind me and told him, ‘Ewww! Why did you do that?’ in disgust, and he just looked at me and walked to his office.”
The answer to her question remains unclear.
Iscenko was fired immediately after the ordeal and the victim ended up winning nearly $150,000 in a suit against the city following her retirement from the police department.
