NYPD cop barred from home after setting husband’s clothes on fire

An NYPD detective charged with setting her husband’s clothes on fire because she suspected him of cheating was banned Wednesday from their home.

The judge did give Marissa Sorocco, 37, permission to go back to her Plainview home with a police escort to pick up a few belongings. As she left the courthouse, she flashed a smile.

After picking up her personal items, Sorocco won’t be allowed back under the terms of an order of protection a judge issued Wednesday at her arraignment in Nassau County District Court in Hempstead.

“She will be staying at her father’s house for Thanksgiving,” her lawyer, James Moschella, said.

Dressed in yoga pants, a black leather jacket and thigh-high black boots, Sorocco was accompanied to court by her father.

Sorocco will not be allowed to enter her Planeview home due to an order of protection issued after her arraignment.

The detective, who works at One Police Plaza in the office of Crime Control Strategies, was busted Tuesday on arson and criminal mischief charges after a blaze erupted in her husband’s closet.

A source said she believed her husband, Paul, a Nassau County cop, was cheating on her.

Prosecutors, who recommended Sorocco get a psychiatric evaluation, said the couple’s two children were home when the fire was set — but her lawyer disputed that account.
