Ex-cop's family to appeal reinstated conviction
As former NYPD officer Richard DiGuglielmo is waiting to be transported to prison after having his murder convection reinstated, his family is vowing to fight for his release.
Rosemarie DiGuglielmo was at her son's side last week when they found out the Dobbs Ferry native will be returning behind bars for killing Charles Campbell in 1996 during a dispute over a parking space.
"I don't understand how a judge can uphold a conviction that we now know was based on lies," DiGuglielmo's mother says.
DiGuglielmo's conviction was overturned in 2008 after he served 12 years out of his 20-years-to-life sentence.
The DiGuglielmos say they will try to appeal the decision. If that fails, the former officer won't be eligible for parole until 2017.
