Trooper admits to stealing from dying motorcyclist.

BRIDGEPORT – A state trooper, caught on his own dashboard camera stealing a dying motorist’s cash and gold crucifix, is facing up to a year and a half in prison.

Although Huntsman, 45, could have faced up to 10 years in prison on the two charges, Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin said he would impose a term in prison of 16 months, followed by five years of probation.

Huntsman walked out of the courtroom with a big smile on his face following the hearing. He declined comment.

Huntsman, who was the first trooper at the crash scene, walked over to where Scalesse lay, bent down and picked up Scalesse’s gold chain from a pool of blood, according to the arrest warrant affidavit. He then took a roll of bills – $3,700 – that had been in Scalesse’s pocket.

Later, Huntsman told Scalesse’s grieving father that he didn’t see any money on the victim, the affidavit states. The cash was later found held with a rubber band under the front seat of Huntsman’s cruiser.

State Police said Huntsman has maintained his innocence even after he was shown a video of him taking the money that was captured on the dash camera of his own police car.

Most criminal cases never make it to trial but this is so horrendous, the State should never have offered him anything.

Can only imagine what else he's done if he's twisted enough to steal from a dying man lying in his own pool of blood.

Pretty disgusting how he gets a reduced sentence because he's a corrupt cop seeing a typically corrupt judge. He won't set a foot in general population at the jail or prison, and the prison will be a minimum security vacation timeshare where he spends his 16 months in protective custody with child molestors and sex offenders. Put this dirty pig in the gp yard and let him deal with the consequences of being a corrupt cop
