A woman who helped her boyfriend kill a cop in 1998 was released on parole Tuesday, only to be locked up again to give officials time to hear from the slain officer’s family.
Betsy Ramos, 55, who was sentenced to 15 years to life after her conviction on manslaughter charges, was released from state prison Tuesday — a parole board decision that blindsided slain NYPD Officer Anthony Mosomillo’s family and left the city’s largest police union fuming.
Her freedom was short lived. After limping into Brooklyn federal court with a cane and struggling to get into her seat, she pleaded guilty to violating the terms of her release in a prior federal case.
Ramos was denied parole at a January hearing, but she appealed that decision and prevailed — and Mosomillo’s family was never given the chance to weigh in, Police Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch said.
“We are grateful to Judge Garaufis for letting the family of our hero police officer be heard,” he said. “Because of the New York State Parole Board’s outrageous deception, the Mosomillo family has been forced to live in fear of seeing Anthony’s killer walk out of prison doors.”
