NYS AG Declines to File Criminal Charges Against Rockland Corrections Officers After Man Dies in Custody

The New York Attorney General’s Office won’t be filing criminal charges against Rockland County corrections officers over the death of man in their custody nearly two years ago. The A-G’s report into the death of Ferdy Jacinto-Martinez said it was tragic but there wasn’t enough evidence to warrant criminal charges. Patch.com says Jacinto-Martinez was arrested July 20th, 2019 by the Spring Valley Police Department and transferred to the Rockland County jail the next day. A few days later, officers needed to restrain Jacinto-Martinez after he started acting erratically. He was transferred to Nyack Hospital, became unresponsive, then was taken to another hospital in Englewood, New Jersey, a few days later, where he died.
