Ex-NYPD officer from WC returns to prison
A former New York City police officer from Dobbs Ferry whose murder conviction was overturned and then reinstated returned to prison yesterday.
Richard DiGuglielmo did not say anything during a brief court session in White Plains. He was led away by court officers with his hands in handcuffs.
Earlier in the day, an appeals judge declined to issue the stay he requested.
The former police officer has been free since a Westchester County judge overturned his conviction in 2008 after he served 12 years of a 20-years-to-life sentence. The Appellate Division reinstated it last week.
DiGuglielmo fatally shot Charles Campbell in 1996. Campbell was fighting with the officer's father over a parking space.
DiGuglielmo says he's sorry about what happened, but will appeal the decision to the state's highest court.
