December Trial Date Set For Former Claremont Cop; Arrests Under Review

Jun 12, 2018

A Sullivan County judge has set a December trial date for former Claremont police officer Ian Kibbe.

Kibbe is facing several charges relating to allegedly faking documents while serving on the Claremont police force.

He appeared briefly in court in Newport Tuesday. His attorney declined a plea deal offered by the state.

As he awaits trial, both the Claremont Police Department and the Sullivan County Attorney's office have been combing through his arrest reports. They're throwing out cases that are now in question in light of the charges against him.

The state Attorney General's office is also re-reviewing a 2016 case where Kibbe shot and killed a 25-year-old man, Cody Lafont.
