A Connecticut state police trooper who stole cash and jewelry from a dying motorcycle accident victim and then resigned has lost his state pension.
State Attorney General George Jepsen announced Thursday a Hartford Superior Court judge recently approved the revocation of Aaron Huntsman‘s pension. Huntsman had been eligible to begin receiving $1,530 a month in 2024.
A 2008 law allows the state to revoke the pensions of state or municipal officials convicted of crimes related to their jobs.
Huntsman stole $3,700 and a gold crucifix from John Scalesse as he lay dying after crashing his motorcycle on the Merritt Parkway in Fairfield in 2012. He was sentenced to a year in prison.
Huntsman is from Fairfield. He has apologized and said he isn’t the same man he was at the time of the accident.
