Retired NYPD Narcotics Detective called a ‘Nappy-Headed Ho’ Settles Lawsuit Against the City for $130K

Police Vehicle

A former NYPD narcotics detective called a “nappy-headed ho” by her sergeant will receive $130,000 from the city to settle her federal suit.

The sergeant, Michael Cantatore, will also have to cough up $1,500 of his own money to pay retired Detective Aretha Williams.
Cantatore retired from the force before any disciplinary action was taken against him; Williams retired in 2009.
“She feels Cantatore was never punished for his behavior,” said Williams’ lawyer, Eric Sanders.
