“In the previous exercise classes/practices that Sansone attended, there was never any intentional contact between any of the members of the club,” Marc Held, Sansone’s attorney, said in an email. “As such, any contact was unexpected and impermissible on campus. Mr. Sansone also never signed any waivers with the school or the club.”
When someone sends their child off to college, they are entrusting that they will be safe,” said Marc Held.
“It is heartbreaking for any parent to be informed that their child was severely hurt during a class because proper safety protocols were not followed. We hope Syracuse University will learn from this incident and ensure that no other students get hurt like Gabriel Sansone,” Marc Held charged.
Four months later, Stefon Luckey claims Frascatore was among a group of officers who punched him, pepper-sprayed him and hurled racial epithets at him outside a Queens deli, the lawsuit said. Luckey’s lawyer, Philip Hines, said his client texted him after Frascatore’s name became public: “Everything done in the dark eventually comes to light.”
In another case the next year, Stefon Luckey said he was followed into a bodega by officers who arrested him and used pepper spray on him, according to a lawsuit. Then Mr. Luckey was handed to Officer Frascatore, who punched him and called him an epithet, his lawyer, Philip M. Hines, said. Mr. Luckey was released without being charged, his lawsuit said.
One complaint was made by Stefon Luckey, who has a $5 million suit against Frascatore and several other cops, claiming he was beaten and pepper-sprayed after getting racially profiled outside a Queens deli in May 2013.
The CCRB dismissed Luckey’s complaint, but Luckey, who is black, maintains Frascatore punched him twice in the stomach and called him a “f-?-king n-?-?-?-r,” said his lawyer, Philip Hines.
