Oliver Jovanovic’s claims that his civil rights were violated by a police detective who fabricated evidence and a prosecutor who poisoned the jury pool with her inflammatory comments to the media in a so-called “cybersex torture” case have been thrown out by a federal judge.

Judge Paul A. Crotty of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York granted summary judgment yesterday to Detective Milton Bonilla and former sex crimes prosecutor Linda Fairstein, finding there was probable cause for charging Jovanovic in the rape, sodomy and kidnapping of Jamie Rzucek, a Barnard College student he met in an America Online chat room.
