One of America's finest will no longer be permitted to leech off Connecticut taxpayers for the rest of his life.
State trooper Aaron Huntsman was caught on video in 2012 robbing a dying crash victim of $3,700 in cash and a $5,500 gold chain saying he would "put it in evidence" when in reality he pocketed it for himself.
Huntsman was fired over the incident and sentenced to a year in prison, now the state has moved to revoke his pension, which was slated to be around $1,530 a month starting July 1, 2024.
"Theft related to an individual's state or municipal position is a serious violation of the public trust and this particular case represented an unconscionable violation of that trust on the part of a law enforcement officer," Attorney General George Jepsen said.
"In 2008, the General Assembly granted my office authority to seek a pension revocation or reduction from a state or municipal official convicted of a felony in connection with their public position. With this court order, Connecticut taxpayers will no longer be on the hook for Mr. Huntsman's pension."
