“hopefully these 2 get life”
I think the 2nd guy should get 6 months. Apparently nothing was found in his locker or it would have been mentioned. The accuser says he did nothing but stand by and watch. And he may have been subjected to pressure by the veteran cop. Sure he should not have stood by and watched. But that is his crime, not rape or anything else.
“Sure he should not have stood by and watched. But that is his crime, not rape or anything else.”
An accomplice is just as guilty as the main actor in the eyes of the law. He might be able to plead to something else if he agrees to testify against the other cop, if charges are ever filed.

What would a civilian get? Serious question, I don’t know. Even if it is something like that, needs to be a felony, not a misdemeanor.
The code of silence where cops don't rat out dirty cops is in itself a crime.
You are a little mixed up I believe. Aiding and abetting is as serious as crime as the actual rape. He is guilty of rape also because he did nothing to stop it and it is HIS JOB to stop crime if he sees one in progress even if, especially if, the perp is another leo.
To say he is almost innocent is BS, he is worse, IMO, than the cop doing the actual rape.
