Andrew Spencer is a registered sex offender that was popped a few years back for gun possession. He concocted a plot, while locked up, to kill the cop that nabbed him:
A paroled sex offender was sentenced to five years in prison Wednesday for a jailhouse plot to kill the NYPD cop who helped put him behind bars three years ago. The five-year term for Andrew Spencer, 25, will run consecutively to the 15-year hitch he has been serving for threatening the cop with a .40-caliber pistol in a fight outside the officer’s Queens home in 2006.
While locked up on Rikers Island, Spencer enlisted the help of ex-con Kiyee Kye to hire a hit man to shoot the cop, Queens prosecutors say. In exchange for a successful hit, Spencer offered a Lexus, a Jeep and $1,000 cash. When an informant alerted police to the hit plot, the NYPD sent an undercover officer to Rikers to offer to do the killing. Spencer drew the officer a map showing where the officer lived.
Kye, 25, was sentenced to 4-1/2 to 9 years for his role in the plot. “Individuals such as these defendants who would threaten the lives of police officers carrying out their sworn duty must be dealt with severely,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
