A judge issued a re-sentenced today for a former Cape May County police officer convicted of kicking two handcuffed suspects.
Friday former Wildwood Police Sargent David Romeo was resentenced to five years and will be able to apply for parole after one year and five days. Prosecutors appealed the original ruling after the judge in 2010 sentenced Romeo to five years in state prison with the possibility of parole after one year. Prosecutors wanted Romeo to face the mandatory minimum of five years without parole. Romeo was convicted of official misconduct for kicking two handcuffed car burglary suspects in the head as they lay on the ground in 2007.
