NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A former New York City police officer acquitted of conspiring to kidnap, kill and eat women has been sentenced to time served for his conviction on a minor charge.
Gilberto Valle, who served 21 months in prison, was sentenced Wednesday for unlawfully accessing a federal database. He also received one year of probation. He must continue to seek mental health treatment and cannot contact women involved in the case.
Prosecutors say they are appealing Judge Paul Gardephe’s decision to override a jury verdict initially convicting Valle.
