NEW YORK (PIX11)– Accused ‘Cannibal Cop’, Gilberto Valle, may take the stand in his own defense.

According to his lawyer, the prosecution ‘cherry-picked’ only damaging testimony from a conversation Valle had with an FBI agent after getting busted last year.

Valle’s lawyer says the agent opened the door to be cross-examined on several key issues, including whether Valle said his interest in cannibalism was real or fantasy.

If the agent is not cross examined, Valle may take the stand to give his side of the story.
