JUDGE RULES AGAINST STATE TROOPER

A judge ruled yesterday that State Trooper Robert D. Higbee, was not eligible for back pay of 27 months and 12 days while he was suspended from the NJ State Police.  Higbee was found not guilty of vehicular homicide in a traffic accident that killed two sisters in September of 2006 in Upper Township. Judge Bruce Gorman issued a lengthy opinion that upheld the penalty given by the State Police Superintendent, and Higbee will not receive any pay for his suspension during a lengthy trial process in 2009. After being found not guilty of vehicular homicide, Higbee then pleaded guilty to driving in an unsafe manner and failure to stop.
