U.S. Appeals Court Clears New York's 'cannibal Cop' of All Charges

Thursday, 03 Dec 2015 10:15 AM

NEW YORK, Dec 3 (Reuters) - New York's so-called "Cannibal Cop" was cleared of all charges by a divided U.S. appeals court on Thursday, more than two years after a jury convicted him of plotting to kill and eat women.

Former New York City Police Officer Gilberto Valle was found guilty at trial in March 2013 of conspiracy to kidnap and illegally accessing a police database to collect information on potential victims.

But the trial judge last year threw out his conviction on the conspiracy charge, a decision that the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York affirmed on Thursday in a 2-1 ruling.
