Police officer to go to trial for alleged hate crimes against Hispanic drivers

The first of two trials is set to begin Tuesday of a former police officer from Long Island accused of hate crimes against Hispanic drivers.

51-year-old Scott Greene, a 25-year old veteran of the Suffolk Police Department, is accused of stealing cash from six Hispanic drivers.

He's also facing a separate trail on a 66-count indictment, alleging hate crimes against 20 other Hispanics.
