In the fascinating case we’ve been following, regarding the firing of former UHP Trooper Lisa Steed for allegedly falsifying DUI arrests, it seems there are two completely different portraits being painted as the once former Trooper of the Year goes to court.
On Tuesday, Steed spoke publicly for the first time about why she deserves to remain in the UHP ranks. She admitted to making some mistakes, but said she is ready to take responsibility for them. But Assistant Attorney General Yvette Donosso and UHP officials portrayed Steed as a cop who cut corners when it suited her and who exhibited a “pattern of deception and dishonesty.”
Administrative law Judge Katherine Fox will ultimately decide which portrait of Steed is more accurate, and if UHP correctly terminated her employment last year. Her ruling isn’t expected until later this month.
