New trial ordered for ex-Ramapo cop convicted of stalking

A federal court has ordered a new trial for a former Ramapo police officer who was convicted of stalking his wife via a hidden GPS device that he placed on her car.

The new trial comes on the heels of new information that some evidence presented at James Curley's trial should not have been allowed. Curley had been on disability from the Ramapo police department for nearly 20 years when he was sentenced to five years in prison last March. His lawyers say that Curley was attempting to gather evidence that his wife was having an affair when he placed the GPS device on her car, an accusation which his wife has denied.Ramapo cop faces stolen vehicle, other charges
