Former NYPD officer accused of hiring a hitman to kill her estranged husband Valerie Cincinelli, 34, has been temporarily banned from contacting her son while in jail
The former NYPD officer who allegedly hired a hitman to kill her husband has been temporarily barred from having contact with her five-year-old son after she violated restrictions on contacting her children.
Valerie Cincinelli, 34, was arrested in May 2019 for allegedly conspiring to have her ‘sugar daddy’ hire an assassin to kill her estranged husband Isaiah Carvalho Jr.
She’s currently detained without bail at Metropolitan Detention Center on charges of murder for hire and obstruction of justice.
However, she’s struggling to follow the rules behind bars.
On Thursday she was temporarily barred from having further phone contact with her youngest child after she recently arranged a phone call with her son through her older daughter, according to the New York Daily News.
She dialed her 12-year-old daughter from jail and had her connect to a conference call with the boy, which wasn’t allowed in the prison.

‘This court was doing everything in its power to try and facilitate some communication for the best interest of the child, between the mother and child, right? And then it’s done inappropriately,’ Nassau County Supreme Court Judge Jeffrey Goodstein said Thursday.
Judge Goodstein banned her from having contact with her son until her next court appearance on September 17, causing her to burst into tears at the Long Island hearing.
Psychologist Dr. Peter Favaro is a court-ordered monitor responsible for overseeing the chats between Cincinelli and her son.
During that Thursday call he said he was confused to hear the voices of two children despite instructions to the contrary.
When he told Cincinelli that she couldn’t have both of her kids on the line, she began to fight back.
‘My request to the mother was simply that it’s only mommy on the phone right now,’ Favaro said. ‘I had to say that about two or three times. The mother then said, “There’s no order of protection preventing this.” She continued to argue with me.’
The attorney for her estranged husband and alleged murder target Isaiah Carvalho Jr was shocked to hear that Cincinelli used one of her kids to connect her to a court-approved call with her other child.
‘This is just Ms. Cincinelli living by her own set of rules again, pushing her own agenda, trying to control the situation, everyone,’ attorney Erika Sakol said.
‘There’s no one else to blame, although she’d like to blame the facility. There’s no one to blame but herself,’ she added.

Cincinelli’s matrimonial lawyer Vincent Trimarco Jr defended her saying she was just trying to make the pre-arranged phone call work under difficult circumstances.
‘We know that prison is not the place where they seek to accommodate prisoners. You’ve got to do what you can to survive there,’ he said, asking the judge to lift the communication ban.
Just last week Cincinelli’s brother Salvatore Cincinelli, a 41-year-old FBI agent, committed suicide.
In the twisted alleged murder-for-hire plot the 34-year-old cop allegedly offered her ‘sugar daddy’ boyfriend John DiRubba – who paid for her car and bills – $7,000 to find a hitman.
She was conspiring to hill her husband Carvalho as well as DiRubba’s 14-year-old daughter, it is claimed. Cincinelli has denied the charges.
She was arrested after NYPD launched a sting operation. DiRubba was allegedly involved in the sting as an FBI informant who was wearing a wire to help investigators.
