NJ troopers lose pay over rape case

October 19, 2009 9:50:32 AM PDT
New Jersey will no longer pay seven suspended state troopers who once faced sexual assault allegations nearly two years ago. 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.
