The teen who seriously injured an NYPD detective from North Baldwin has been convicted.
Justin Murrella, 17, of Brooklyn, was convicted of first-degree assault on Monday. However, Murrella was acquitted of the more serious attempted murder charge.
Prosecutors say Murrella sped away in a stolen car dragging Det. Dalsh Veve for several blocks.
The 2017 incident in Brooklyn left the detective with brain damage and needing 24-hour care.
Murrella faces up to 10 years in prison when he's sentenced in January.
