Guilty plea for former Mayor de Blasio’s top security guard to obstruction and tampering with evidence in detail probe


An NYPD official who once served as former Mayor Bill de Blasio’s top security aide turned himself in to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office on Wednesday before pleading guilty to criminal charges.

Inspector Howard Redmond, 52, stood before a judge inside criminal court on Aug. 9 and admitted to repeatedly impeding DOI investigators and tampering with evidence while the Department of Investigation (DOI) probed allegations that de Blasio had misused security detail resources in the summer of 2019, during his failed presidential campaign.
