This scum bag should be given the most extreme punishments the law provides, and I'd suggest going further if such a thing was even possible.

This is beyond disgusting, he abused so many levels of trust and authority. He has disgraced the police, disgraced the gay community, and set both back significantly. He has ruined this poor boys life, and he should be made an example of!

Former NYC cop from Nanuet sentenced to 5 years in jail on sodomy charge

A former New York City police sergeant began making sexual advances toward an orphaned 12-year-old boy just two weeks after the child's mother died, the victim's brother said at the officer's sentencing on sodomy charges yesterday.

Jaime Katz frequently brought the child, who lived with a sibling in New York City, to his mother's home in Nanuet, where the abuse continued for years.

That abuse drove the teen, now 18, to attempt suicide, the victim told the court in a statement.

He attended Katz's sentencing but was too distraught to address him in court. The victim left the room as Katz, clad in an orange prison jump suit and handcuffs, was led into the court.

Katz, a former head of the Gay Officers Action League, an advocacy group for law enforcement officers, pleaded guilty in January in Rockland to first-degree attempted sodomy. He admitted he tried to have oral sex with the 12-year-old on Feb. 14, 2003, at his family's house on Norwood Place in Nanuet.

He also pleaded guilty in state Supreme Court in Manhattan to a felony count of second-degree sodomy and a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.

As part of the joint pleas, Katz will serve a concurrent sentence capped at five years in state prison. He will also serve 10 years' post-confinement supervision.

Katz will have to register as a sex offender and the judge yesterday issued an order of protection keeping him away from the victim for 15 years.

The victim's older brother read two statements to the court, one from him and one from his brother.

Both statements described years of abuse the boy suffered at the hands of Katz, a 39-year-old police sergeant.

In the statement, the teen described how Katz used his position as a police officer and a person of authority to make advances to him when he was a child.

"You are a crooked cop and a crooked person," he said to Katz in his statement.

His brother described how Katz manipulated the boy and bribed him with alcohol and even let him play with his service revolver.

The boy's brother told the court that Katz was sly, always offering a reasonable explanation for his desire to be alone with the child.
