More Cases Tied to Fired Trooper Dropped

Posted September 15, 2007

— Eleven more people stopped by former state Highway Patrol Trooper Scott Harrison are scheduled to have their charges dropped.

Harrison was fired a few weeks ago after being accused of targeting women for overnight traffic stops. 

When a judge ruled his credibility was questionable, Wake County District Attorney Colon Willoughby dismissed charges Harrison brought against 82 motorists.

Willoughby told WRAL-TV 5 on Saturday, charges will be dismissed for 11 more people who had appeals pending.

Harrison has denied allegations that he targeted women.
