Troopers lose pay over rape case

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - October 19, 2009

A spokesman for Attorney General Anne Milgram, whose office oversees the State Police, says the troopers' pay was suspended Saturday as part of an internal disciplinary matter. He had no further comment.

The troopers, who were never charged in the case, had continued to receive pay while suspended since the December 2007 incident.

The case began when a 25-year-old Rider University student reported that she had been raped in the Ewing Township home of a trooper after a night out at a Trenton nightclub.

A call out to the state trooper's union has not been returned.
