Ohio deputy, state trooper convicted of fault in duties



Published: Tue, December 18, 2012 @ 4:48 p.m.

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper and a sheriff’s deputy have been convicted of dereliction of duty in relation to an intoxicated man who was taken to a fast-food restaurant and was later struck and killed by a vehicle in central Ohio.

A jury today found that Trooper Sean Carpenter and Delaware County Deputy Derek Beggs were guilty of misdemeanor dereliction of duty. They were fined $1,000.

They were accused of not properly dealing with the drunken man, who was taken to a Taco Bell and not taken into custody.

Carpenter’s attorney called the allegations baseless and said he’ll appeal. A message was left for Beggs’ attorney.

A second deputy charged in the case previously pleaded no contest to failure to assist a law enforcement officer. He was fined $20.

That's the one of the nicest things I've ever heard about law enforcement. Other than my father these are the first cops I ever liked.
