CAMDEN -- Two city police officers were charged with official misconduct on Friday, accused of beating and prodding a 15-year-old male with blunt objects after the juvenile was arrested and handcuffed here in October 2005.
George Ingram, 34, a patrolman, and Lawrence Norman, age unavailable, a detective, were suspended Friday from the Camden Police Department without pay. They had been on desk duty since shortly after the alleged offenses occurred on Oct. 19.
In addition to official misconduct, a second-degree charge carrying a maximum 10 years in prison upon conviction, Ingram is charged with fourth-degree aggravated assault, accused of placing his gun to the handcuffed juvenile's head for no lawful purpose. Under New Jersey law, the assault charge carries a mandatory 18 months in prison upon conviction if it involves a firearm.
