    Council decertifies

    former Vt. trooper

    BURLINGTON ó A former Vermont State Police sergeant in prison after pleading guilty to padding his timesheets can never serve as a police officer again in the state.

    The Vermont Criminal Justice Training Council has voted to decertify Jim Deeghan as a police officer.

    Richard Gauthier of the Vermont Police Academy said Deeghan is the first full-time police officer to be decertified in the state.

    The 50-year-old Deeghan has not contested the decertification.

    Deeghan is serving up to two years in prison and must pay over $200,000 in restitution.
