WILLIAMSON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A West Virginia State trooper implicated in the Mingo County corruption scandal is no longer on the job.
According to West Virginia State Police Lt. Michael Baylous, Trooper Brandon Moore, who worked out of the Williamson Detachment, has resigned.
Baylous said he was unable discuss when Moore resigned or why, citing personnel issues.
In court documents Moore was accused of helping former Mingo County Circuit Judge Michael Thornsbury frame his secretary's husband.
Moore was named the "Troopers Association Trooper of the Year" in 2009. It was the same year he organized a drug roundup in Mingo County that netted 60 arrests. He also completed 37 drug investigations.
Moore was on paid administrative leave during an internal investigation that centered on the allegations against him. Baylous said Moore was on paid administrative leave when he resigned.
U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin told WSAZ.com by phone Friday night that Moore was granted immunity in the case. That means Moore will not face federal-related charges.
