Valle’s attorney said in his defense:

It was all fantasy — sick, twisted, ugly fantasies, traded on the computer, that’s what this prosecution rests on, the ugliness of Gil’s thoughts.

One of Valle’s online pseudonyms was Girlmeat Hunter. During the trial prosecutors brought the jury through an online tour of websites that were found on the ex-NYPD’s Internet history.

US Attorney Preet Bharara told reporters after the verdict had been read out:

…the Internet is a forum for the free exchange of ideas, but it does not confer immunity for plotting crimes and taking steps to carry out those crimes.
