When Chambers was at the Maimonides Medical Center for a medical examination 9 police officers showed up at tried to convince the teen to keep quiet about their colleagues, according to David.
David publicly stated that this was an attempted by the NYPD to bully his client into keeping quiet about a sexual assault.
Chambers shared reports about the rape on her Facebook page and urged others to spread the story.
According to the teen’s attorney, Chambers and her friends were driving around Brighton Beach when they were pulled over by detectives Edward Martins and Richard Hall.
The detectives searched the vehicle and they ordered Chambers to lift her shirt to make sure she was not hiding drugs.
The detectives then handcuffed Chambers and placed her into their vehicle.
Martins and Hall then told the teen’s friends that Chambers will be booked at the Coney Island police station.
Instead of taking her to the police station, Martins and Hall drove to a secluded area, where they raped the teen for 45 minutes.
The detectives then released the teen and drove away.
Chambers went to the Maimonides Medical Center, where doctors noticed signs of sexual assault and called the police.
Police launched an investigation and the two detectives were charged.
Martins and Hall claimed that the sex was consensual.
Martins and Hall have been indicted on a charge of first-degree rape.
If convicted, they both face 25 years in prison.
