W.Va. trooper linked to federal corruption investigation resigns

Reported by: Associated Press
Saturday, April 26, 2014 11:59 AM EDT

A West Virginia state trooper linked in a federal investigation to a former Mingo County circuit judge's scheme to wrongfully arrest a man has resigned.

The Charleston Gazette reports Williamson Trooper Brandon Moore had been on paid administrative leave since August pending the outcome of an internal investigation.

State Police spokesman Lt. Michael Baylous didn't say when or why Moore resigned.

A federal indictment alleged Moore and a police officer helped with an unsuccessful plot by ex-judge Michael Thornsbury to frame his romantic rival for several crimes. Neither Moore nor the officer was charged.

Charges against Thornsbury in that case were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea in a scheme to keep a sign maker quiet about allegedly providing the late Sheriff Eugene Crum with prescription pills.
