New York police officer convicted in cannibal plot

Former New York City police officer Gilberto Valle was convicted today for plotting to kidnap, rape, and cook women.

While Valle never carried out his plot, there was evidence that he took steps to make the cannibalism scheme a reality, including a document found on his wife's laptop called "abducting and cooking Kimberly: A blue print."

The defense argued it was all just sick fantasy. Was Valle convicted for his thoughts? Or is the verdict and a potential lifetime in jail justified?

Outfront tonight: Criminal defense attorney, Anne Bremner and former prosecutor Wendy Murphy.
