Guilty Plea of Jonathan Nunez!
Feb 07, 2023

(SUFFOLK COUNTY, N.Y.) – District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney today announced the guilty plea of Jonathan Nunez, 27, of Centereach, for stabbing and seriously injuring a Suffolk County Police Officer in 2021 after an attempted traffic stop.

"This is yet another stark reminder of the dangers that our police officers face every day. This defendant admitted that he nearly killed a police officer who was merely conducting a simple traffic stop,” said District Attorney Tierney. “Fortunately, this officer did not lose his life, but he was seriously injured and had to undergo surgery and blood transfusions in order to stay alive, and all because he was just doing his job.”

“I do believe Mr. Nunez does belong behind bars,” said Christopher Racioppo, now a patrol sergeant in Fifth Precinct in Patchogue, after Nunez pleaded guilty. ”I think it is safer for him and safer for him and safer for everybody else in Suffolk County.” 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Sheetal Shetty of the Major Crime Bureau.
