SALT LAKE CITY -- Prosecutors won't charge a Utah Highway Patrol trooper whose credibility on drunken driving cases was challenged.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports prosecutors said Monday that a review from the Utah County Attorney's office found the case against Cpl. Lisa Steed was not strong enough to be proven in court.
Steed's credibility in drunken driving cases has been questioned. A judge in the 3rd District, which includes Salt Lake City, said Steed wasn't truthful and suppressed evidence in a case in April. That same month, a judge in the 2nd District, which includes Davis County, also suppressed evidence in a case. The Davis County attorney has said he will not prosecute cases where Steed is a significant witness.
Steed is still with the UHP, but has been removed from road duty.
