Detective Oscar Sandino Charged with Making Lewd Remarks to Prisoner

A veteran detective was arrested Friday on charges of making lewd remarks to a female prisoner, police sources said.

The suspect, Detective Oscar Sandino, 36, was sued in June by a Queens woman who accused him of sodomizing her in a police station bathroom. There were no criminal charges, the sources said.

The latest incident involved a court officer arrested for obstructing governmental administration, who accused Sandino of making a sexual remark to her while she was being moved from a holding cell on Sept. 16.

Sandino was charged with harassment and official misconduct, sources said.

In the federal lawsuit, still pending, a 29-year-old woman said Sandino - following a 2008 drug raid at her apartment - groped and sodomized her while she was in custody.
