NEW YORK - New York City police officer Gilberto Valle pleaded not guilty on Monday to conspiring to kidnap, torture, cook and eat women.

The 28-year-old, of Forest Hills, Queens, was charged and arrested in October with conspiring to cross state lines to kidnap the women and with illegally accessing a federal database.

Prosecutors said some of the women were acquaintances of Valle but it was not clear if he knew or had met all of them.

Valle, who an official said had no prior criminal record, was not charged with carrying out any of his suspected plans.

At a brief hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Valle's attorney, Julia Gatto, told the judge she would again seek to have her client freed on bail after two other judges previously denied her request.

Investigators uncovered a file on Valle's computer containing the names and pictures of at least 100 women, and the addresses and physical descriptions of some of them, according to the criminal complaint.

The complaint said he had undertaken surveillance of some of the women at their places of employment and their homes.

Gatto argued that Valle, a 6-1/2 year NYPD veteran, was all talk and should be released on bail.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of life in prison.

 "But your honor, I wasn't really going to cook and eat those women, I'm just a load of hot air, you know, all talk and no action.  I mean, I don't even know how to cook!"

Wow.. I am guessing there must be more evidence than this article is sharing. Assuming all the accusations are true, I am glad they caught him before he did anything. Scary.

That "man" has some extremely sick fantasies, then, and I for one, would not want to remain within 500 miles of that creep.

I am torn. I think he should be charged with aggravated stalking and lose his job never to work in LE again.

I have a hard time charging him with a crime that hadn't been committed. I get why they did but it could have so many unintended consequences. Some posters here at CM have made some pretty well thought out posts of what they would do to certain people. Hell some posters would be charged with a crime like this based on some of the PM's they have sent. Do we really want to get in the habit of criminalizing people for talking about a crime?

Charge him for crimes he did commit. Not ones that may or may not have happened.

 I agree with you both as well.

I'm wondering if there is more evidence that was not listed in the article.
