(The AEGIS Alliance) – Former NYPD officer Valerie Cincinelli has been sentenced to 4 years behind bars for obstruction linked to a presumed plot to have her estranged hubby murdered and also her boyfriend’s teenage girl.
On Friday, U.S. District Judge Joanna Seybert was lenient on Cincinelli at a court in Long Island and locked her up for a year under the 5 prosecutors had sought.
A scathing memo concerning the sentencing was written by Assistant U.S. Attorney Catherine Mirabile that read, “This conduct is particularly egregious considering Cincinelli was a uniformed NYPD officer at the time of her crimes.”
Cincinelli’s lawyer James Kousouros argued for a sentence that includes time served, taking note that his client has currently been in prison for 30 months because she has been apprehended and jailed in May of 2019. He pointed out that 37-year-old Cincinelli was merely venting when she discussed having her hubby as well as boyfriend’s teenage girl killed.
“We’re very pleased with the overall outcome of the case,” stated Kousouros following the sentencing. “Ms. Cincinelli is eligible for release within the next few months given the time she’s already served.”
Cincinelli gave a guilty plea on April 16 to a single count of obstruction for erasing implicating evidence from her phone pertaining to the plot. In exchange, prosecutors consented to drop both murder-for-hire counts she was facing.
The shamed police officer apparently paid $7,000 to her boyfriend at the time, John Dirubba, to employ a hitman to murder her estranged husband named Isaiah Carvalho Jr., during the middle of a spiteful breakup and guardianship fight over their boy. She additionally has a daughter coming from a previous marital relationship.
Valerie Cincinelli, who had been a veteran on the force for 12 years, operating in the domestic violence unit of a Queens district back then, desired her hubby to be eliminated so he would not acquire a portion of her pension plan, courtroom documents reveal.
Her checklist of targets quickly grew to consist of Dirubba’s age 13 teen daughter “out of sheer jealously and personal hatred.”
In a videotaped discussion with Dirubba, Cincinelli conveyed aggravation that the teen daughter was using up an excessive amount of her dad’s money and time. “Run her the f—k over, how about that?” she proposed to her then-beau.
The strategy untangled following Dirubba getting arrested for an additional criminal offense, he admitted to the murder-for-hire secret plans, as well as cooperated with the FBI againstCincinelli. Dirubba put on a wire that recorded both of them scheming to get rid of Carvalho and also the teen daughter.
Law enforcement put together a sting with the aid of Carvalho, falsely saying to Cincinelli that her hubby had actually been killed. Agents pointed Dirubba to reveal to her a staged photograph of her husband lifeless in a car and inform her it came from the hitman.
