Former trooper finds new job with state lottery

Posted July 22, 2010

— A former highway patrol trooper who was fired after a sexual encounter with a fellow trooper's wife now has a new job with the state.

Timothy White was hired in May by the North Carolina Education lottery as an investigator, WRAL News has learned.

The hiring came less than a year after he was let go by the patrol for conduct unbecoming of an officer.

At the time of his dismissal, White filed an appeal, arguing he was treated more harshly than other troopers with similar offenses. He eventually resigned from the patrol.

    The State fired him for unethical conduct. How does he manage to get another job with the State?

    On another local TV website, there is an article about a NC trooper finding 67lbs of pot during a traffic stop, guess what - no comments! As long as troopers are doing their job,they don't get noticed or receive a thank you. Must be a slow news day for WRAL if all this is all they can report, WRAL give the whole trooper thing a break. At least the former trooper found himself a decent job.

    Now, who would know more about investigating than someone who has been investigated?

    Congrats on finding a job - i'm a former weigh scale operator and have not been able to find one.

    I'm sure the lottery hired the best person they could get for the position. Wonder who didn't get hired.

    The NCHP is under too much pressure that isn't related to the safety of the public.

    Good for him. I wish him the best.There are many Troopers who have been fired for political expediency, only to land in Local Sheriff Departments and other places which greatly appreciate their talents. You want to really solve the Patrol's problems, then take away the authority of the Governor's office and Sec of Crime Control.
