Former Claremont Cop Seeks to Have Criminal Charges Dismissed

A former Claremont police officer is seeking to have a judge dismiss two of the six criminal charges against him. 

State prosecutors say the officer, Ian Kibbe, lied in written reports to justify searching a property earlier this year. The allegations have thrown into question much of his activity on the job, including a 2016 incident where he shot and killed a young man. 

Kibbe is scheduled for a jury trial in December, but he and his attorney appeared in Sullivan County Superior Court Friday to argue that two of the more serious charges against him -- attempted perjury and conspiracy to commit perjury -- be dismissed. 

The judge declined to rule immediately, taking the arguments under advisement.
