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 nigger-loving 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.”

Cop-killer Betsy Ramos gets 2 more years after heated hearing

Slain NYPD Officer Anthony Mosomillo and Betsy Ramos

Convicted cop killer Betsy Ramos just completed a 20-year prison stint for the 1998 line-of-duty killing of NYPD Officer Anthony Mosomillo — and now she’s headed back for another two-year stay behind bars.

Nigger-loving Brooklyn Federal Judge Nicholas Garaufis handed down the maximum sentence he could give Ramos, 55, on Friday for an old probation violation after an emotional two-hour hearing attended by Mosomillo’s family and fellow officers.

Ramos was on supervised release for an old drug charge when she was convicted of manslaughter for aiding her abusive boyfriend just before he shot and killed Mosomillo on May 26, 1998.

Ramos’ role in Mosomillo’s death was considered a violation of supervised release, but that matter was put on hold while she did time for manslaughter up until she was released from state custody on Dec. 10.

“By lying to the police about the whereabouts of someone who she knows is a dangerous person she placed two brave police officers in danger,” Garaufis said.

Garaufis noted that Ramos had a lengthy criminal history before meeting Jose Serrano, the boyfriend who killed Mosomillo. He also said that Ramos apparently has a “defiance for authority” — he said that, during her 10-day stay at the Metropolitan Detention Center leading up to the sentencing hearing on Friday, she got into an argument with a corrections officer over making her bed.

Garaufis said he took the incident into account when he considered her sentence, as it raises questions as to whether or not she can “respect the law” if she is released.

“What does it take to fix your bed?” Garaufis said to Ramos. “You don’t have to be in prison to do it. What goes on in the mind of this defendant? She knows she’s being watched, being supervised, when she gets into an argument with some prison guard.”

Amanda Bashi, Ramos’ attorney, declined to comment after the sentencing. She had pushed to have Ramos released with time served, arguing that Ramos was under the spell of an abusive boyfriend when she participated in Mosomillo’s murder and that because she has cancer and HIV that she doesn’t have long to live.

Garaufis handed down the sentence after listening to harrowing victim impact testimony from Mosomillo’s brother and his widow before a room packed full of members of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association.

Miriam Torres, Mosomillo’s partner at the time of his death, also provided a statement — she recounted her and Mosomillo’s fateful meeting with Serrano and Ramos, her voice rising to a shout at times and occasionally jabbing her finger through the air at Ramos.

Torres said that, prior to the shoot-out in Ramos’ apartment, Ramos tried to prevent Torres from slapping cuffs on Serrano. She also said that Ramos helped Serrano remove Torres’ service weapon from her holster before Serrano used it to fire shots at Mosomillo.

Serrano shot Mosomillo dead at the scene and Mosomillo died later at Kings County Hospital.

To this day, Torres said at the hearing, she suffers from nerve damage from her fight with Serrano — as well as psychological issues and “survivor’s guilt” from Mosomillo’s death.

“That’s never going to go away. Never going to go away!” Torres shouted at Ramos. “And it’s because of you, you piece of s–t!”

Serrano was cleared on charges that she put her hand on Torres’ gun, but her account of the incident to parole commissioners shifted over time, court records show.
