Micheal Perri, 34, of East Islip was sentenced to 33 months in prison on Thursday, May 18 for his role in the conspiracy, according to the US District Attorney’s Office.

According to court documents, Perry took over the towing and auto repair business after retiring from the NYPD. He was assigned to the 107th Precinct in Queens.

Beginning in May 2020, Perri hatched a scheme to bribe two active-duty 107th Precinct officers, James Davneiro, 44, of Bayside, and Giancarlo Osma, 40, of Deer Park, to use their positions as officers to help Perri own business.

Under the plan, Davneiro and Osma would respond to crashes and direct damaged vehicles to Perri’s business, rather than using the NYPD’s existing system of ensuring no car or towing business gets preferential treatment.

Davneiro and Osma bypassed the system, which requires NYPD officials to use a computer system to randomly select the appropriate towing company to respond to the scene (called the Directed Accident Response Program, or DARP).

Perri bribed the two active-duty officers more than $50,000 to blame his business for all incidents.

From May 2020 to May 2021, Davneiro and Osma delivered 73 cars damaged in accidents to Perri’s company, earning him more than $150,000.

In November 2022, he pleaded guilty to conspiracy to use an interstate facility to pay bribes.

In addition to forfeiting the $158,000 he paid the government, Perri was ordered to pay an additional $25,000 in fines.
