Prosecutors say two New York City police officers will face charges of rape, burglary and evidence tampering in connection with an attack on a Manhattan woman.
Officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata are accused of assaulting an intoxicated woman they had escorted home in December.
The officers were initially responding to a 911 call from a taxi driver complaining that the woman had gotten stick in his cab.
The officers are also charged with official misconduct. Moreno faces an additional drug possession charge.
They could get up to 25 years in prison. Lawyers for the two men say they are innocent.
