PBA PRESIDENT REACTS TO THE CONVICTION OF THE RINGLEADER IN THE MURDER OF POLICE OFFICER PETER FIGOSKI

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“It is gratifying that the jury had the courage to hold Nelson Morales criminally responsible for the murder of police officer Peter Figoski and for the burglary Morales and his crew committed. Morales was the genesis of the burglary that resulted in the loss of a fine man and police officer. We thank the residents of Brooklyn who sat on the jury, listened attentively and came to a just decision.”
