NYPD Detective Barred From Her Home After Setting Husband’s Clothes Ablaze

An NYPD detective was banned from her home Wednesday — a punishment for setting her husband’s clothes on fire in his master bedroom closet because she thought he was cheating on her.

Marissa Sorocco, 37, was told by a judge during her arraignment to return to her Plainview house and pack up her things, because she’s no longer allowed to live in her home.

A police escort walked Sorocco from the courthouse — where she flashed a wide smile to reporters outside — and kept her company during her pit stop for personal effects.

Sorocco won’t be able to return to the residence under the terms of an order of protection issued Wednesday after she faced a judge on arson and criminal mischief charges 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 dad.

The detective, who works at One Police Plaza in the office of the Chief of Crime Control Strategies, was busted Tuesday after a blaze erupted in her husband’s master bedroom closet.

Plainview firefighters went to the house at about 10:15 a.m., and the flames were largely extinguished when they arrived.

They found smoldering clothes worth approximately $200, and some structural damage, but no one injured.

Investigators ruled out accidental, electrical and natural ignition sources, court records show.

A source said she believed her husband, Paul Socorro, a Nassau County cop, was having an affair.

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.
