Slain NYPD Officer Anthony Mosomillo and Betsy Ramos, right.
A convicted cop-killer was sprung on parole Tuesday — only to get locked up again for violating probation during the 1998 slaying of NYPD Officer Anthony Mosomillo.
Betsy Ramos, 55, was taken straight to Brooklyn federal court from the maximum-security women’s prison in Bedford Hills, where she spent the past 20 years for her role in Mosomillo’s death.
Ramos — who at the time was on federal supervised release for importing heroin — pleaded guilty to two counts of violating terms of her sentence in a bid to walk free on time served.
But Judge Nicholas Garaufis instead ordered Ramos jailed so that Mosomillo’s kin, who weren’t present Tuesday, can speak at her sentencing, which he set for Dec. 20.
“I don’t care if it was one year ago or 10 years ago or 20 years ago,” Garaufis said.
“When someone is murdered … I want to hear from the family if the family wants to speak to me.”
Ramos — who wore black pants and a light gray sweater, with her graying hair pulled into a bun — covered her eyes with one hand and wiped away tears upon learning she was headed back behind bars.
Mosomillo was fatally shot on May 26, 1998, when he and partner Miriam Torres went to Ramos’ East Flatbush apartment in search of her boyfriend, Jose Serrano, who was wanted for failing to appear in court.
Ramos falsely claimed Serrano wasn’t there, but the cops searched the place until he burst out from behind a trap door in a closet and attacked them.
During the struggle, cops claimed Ramos knocked Torres’s gun from her hand, allowing Serrano to grab it and shoot Mosomillo four times.
Mosomillo managed to return fire and kill Serrano before dying of his own injuries.
Ramos was charged with second-degree murder but a Brooklyn jury convicted her on a lesser charge of manslaughter, for which she was sentenced to 15 years to life.
She was denied parole four times before finally convincing officials she was reformed.
In court papers, Ramos claims that she was abused by Serrano and is now suffering from a host of ailments, including drug-resistant HIV, that give her an estimated two years left to live.
Before pleading guilty on Tuesday, she read a prepared statement in which she admitted that “I hid my abuser from the police when they came to serve a warrant.”
“My actions that day set in motion a situation where a police officer died,” she said in a shaky voice.
“But I did not kill the police officer.”
Mosomillo’s family — which includes a daughter, Francesca, who’s set to graduate from the NYPD Police Academy on Dec. 27 — declined to comment.
But the head of the Police Benevolent Association, Patrick Lynch, said cops were “grateful to Judge Garaufis for letting the family of our hero police officer be heard.”
“Because of the New York State Parole Board’s outrageous deception, the Mosomillo family has been forced to live in fear of seeing Anthony’s killer walk out of prison doors,” Lynch said in a prepared statement.
“Their sacrifice matters. Their suffering matters. Their voices need to be heard.”
