Newark, New Jersey Aug 15, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – When Detective Spell questioned former bank teller Faith Brewster, he made it clear that she could be arrested and face a lot of time, then initiated sex with her. Ms. Brewster eventually pleaded guilty and did community service. Another young woman Summer Robbins was similarly engaged by Spell. The Department of Justice has initiated an investigation with the New York Internal Affairs Bureau into all of Detective Spell’s cases, as these statutory sexual assaults may involve many more victims than what was recently revealed in Federal Court.
Detective Clifford Spell was using his position of power to pressure young black women to have sex to avoid arrest and to provide him evidence.
One of Detective Spell’s victims, Ms. Faith Brewster, was interviewed by the DOJ on July 3, 2023. She stated that “Detective Spell was the investigating detective.” “[I] was worried he was going to arrest me that day. I was thinking where my son would go if I were arrested. He offered to take me to lunch. I was nervous, so I agreed to go to lunch. He paid for lunch. I knew the circumstances of [the] situation I was in, so [it] struck me as a bit odd.” “He said another detective indicated I might face a big charge.” “I thought if I didn’t play nice the situation could turn worse, like I could go to jail for a long time. He was talking to me more about generally what could happen from what he had seen, possible outcomes.”,”Second or third time he visited, we ended up having a sexual interaction. He was perhaps there to show me photos that day.” “[He] did the business of showing photos” He followed me into my son’s bedroom, started touching me and kissing me… “then we had sex”, “he had his gun with him” and I “didn’t feel like I could say no”. “He was there for two or three hours.”
New York Internal Affairs Bureau is not only investigating his actions with Ms. Brewster but also other women that he was investigating, including Summer Robbins. Ms. Robbins revealed in her interview with the DOJ on June 3, 2023, that “Spell came to [her] mom’s house and job” and he “took her to IHOP”. Spell suggested that “I can try to get you a deal.” She asked Detective Spell that “if I don’t cooperate, will you arrest me? He said eventually.”
Detective Spell has turned in his firearm and badge and was put on “modified assignment”. He is scheduled to quietly retire on August 9, 2023.
When an NYPD police detective uses coercion and intimidation to sexually prey on women, these actions must be firmly addressed. The Racial Justice Reform Movement asks you to email and pick up the phone and demand justice for Spell’s victims. Women should not ever be intimidated to have sex with our government officials to avoid arrest. If we will not stand up for our women, who will we stand up for?
