NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s been nearly five years since Eric Garner’s death, and now a long awaited disciplinary trial will begin to learn whether Officer Daniel Pantaleo will keep his position with the NYPD for his involvement.

Pantaleo is being prosecuted by the civilian complaint review board, reports CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis.

A widely-seen video shows some of the final moments of Garner’s life and has become the centerpiece in the case against New York City police officer.

Pantaleo is accused of placing Garner in a chokehold back in 2014 while attempting to arrest him for selling loose cigarettes.

Officer in 'I can't breathe' death is scapegoat, lawyer says

Officer in 'I can't breathe' death is scapegoat, lawyer says A defense lawyer says the New York City police officer accused of using a banned chokehold in the July 2014 death of Eric Garner is being made a scapegoat in a politically charged atmosphere. Officer Daniel Pantaleo's disciplinary hearing was held Monday. Garner was the unarmed black man whose pleas of "I can't breathe" became a rallying cry against police brutality. Garner's mother and sister left the hearing room in tears as video was played of the arrest that led to his death. The video was played as the man who took it, Ramsey Orta, testified from prison, where he is serving time for drug and weapon charges.

A long-delayed disciplinary trial is set to begin, Monday, May 13, 2019, for the New York City police officer accused of using a banned chokehold in Garner ' s death in July 2014. Pantaleo could face penalties ranging from the loss of vacation days to firing if he' s found to have violated department rules.

A grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo on criminal charges in a sealed report.

He has remained on desk duty since the incident, but at an administrative hearing back in December, Garner’s family said that’s not enough.

“At this point in time, he’s needs to pay for what he’s done because he’s able to live his life with his family, but Eric is not able to live his life with his family,” said Alicia, Garner’s sister.

The New York City Police Benevolent Association president also spoke that day.

“We can’t listen to the noise,” said PBA President Pat Lynch. “Listen to the evidence. We are going to bring before us evidence that officer Pantaleo did exactly what he was trained to do.”

The city’s medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide, saying he died from a choke hold complicated by health issues. But just last month, the attorney for officer Pantaleo announced the NYPD’s chief surgeon determined he did not use a chokehold when trying to arrest Garner.

The New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board, a police oversight agency, is prosecuting Pantaleo.

If he is found to have violated department rules regarding the reckless and intentional use of a chokehold, he could be fired from the NYPD.

Top NYPD trainer testifies Officer Daniel Pantaleo used banned chokehold in Eric Garner death.
A top NYPD instructor testified Tuesday that Officer Daniel Pantaleo was never trained to use a seatbelt hold, contradicting claims by the cop’s lawyer during his departmental trial for the death of Eric Garner. Inspector Richard Dee, the head of training at the NYPD Police Academy, said Pantaleo was repeatedly instructed not to use the chokehold that led to Garner’s death as he was arrested on Staten Island on July 17, 2014. Pantaleo’s lawyer Stuart London on Monday said Pantaleo used a“seatbelt” maneuver to take Garner down that was approved by the NYPD.
