A convicted cop killer who gunned down an off-duty NYPD cop trying to stop a trio of car thieves in 1980 has been granted parole, the city police union said Thursday.
Paul Ford, 58, one of three men convicted in the Aug. 15, 1980 shooting death of Police Officer Harry Ryman, is scheduled to be released next month despite receiving a life sentence in the case, the Police Benevolent Association said on Twitter.
Another man convicted in the cop’s killing, Barrington Young, 62, was released last year and deported, the records show.
The third convict, Cornelius Bucknor, 59, has been granted a parole hearing as well, the police union said.
Cops have come before the parole board for years to keep all three behind bars.
“I just told them, ‘Harry didn’t have a chance to see his children grow up, he didn’t have an opportunity to see his children get married, and he didn’t get to see his grandchildren,” Phil Ferrante, Ryman’s former partner at the 60th Precinct in Coney Island, said after a 2006 parole board hearing.
Ford was convicted of murder, weapons possession, attempted robbery, and grand larceny, records show.
