KSP Trooper Appeared In Court

A Kentucky State Police trooper went before a judge to answer to charges of alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.

Kentucky State Police Sergeant Timothy Moore pleaded not guilty.

He was arrested by Pikeville Police outside the Expo Center last month.

Moore was suspended with pay.

An arrest citation charges Moore was drunk and yelled curse words and other obscenities at a Pikeville officer after a concert at the Expo Center.

Records say he refused to talk to police after his car was stopped.

In court, Moore's attorney says he is looking forward to resolving the situation.

“We will cooperate fully as we have in the past, Sgt. Moore as I've state has respects the system and respects the process. He's been very cooperative and continues to do so. We feel that once all the facts come to light, the situation will be resolved rather quickly,” Terry Jacobs, Moore’s Attorney, said.

Terry Jacobs says Sgt. Moore is ready to go back to his job with the Kentucky State Police.

Assistant County Attorney Roger Varney says Sgt. Moore will not receive any special treatment because he is a state trooper.

    Hey Jesus said let him without sin cast the first stone Tim was a loving and caring person that like so many made a mistake he went to a concert in Pikeville. Yes he was drinking and that I don't condone but he still gave 11 years of service without a problem to the KSP. He is now gone and I hope people will leave him alone he was a husband a father a brother and a friend but most of all he was a Kentucky State Police officers who protected this state well. I pray for all you that talked badly about him and ask you from a grandmothers heart to let it be now and let him rest. As for the media shame on you because you guys know better but did not do it. Think the next time you jump on the band wagon what it it was you. my advice stay out of Pikeville city cause it may be you the police target next ask your self was Tim the first answer no and he won;t be the last city railroads eaither.

    I think its a shame how this ksp officer was cursified by narror minded people for going out with his wife and friends and doing the same thing a lot of other people do including Pikevilles officers and Judges but because he was not from Pikeville he recieved such treatment. will I think WYMT and the rest of the media should be ashame of their self. He was a honored ksp officer who put his life on the line to protect Kentucky he was loved by those who knew him and deserves respect because he earned it. For once Kentucky stand up for the right of a true officer they are not all bad. Tim was a great one and a loving father and husband and friend . Over six hundred people attended this mans services to honor hois life but not one one news person showed up shame on you all. Jesus said let the one without sin cast the first stone Tim is gone now please stop thowing stones because on day his little girl will grow up and may read these comments think about that before you thow another stone

    I would like to say to all the people that had unkind words to say about Trooper Tim Moore and you all know who you are that you didn't know him well enough to say any thing.And none of us has the right to judge anyone.Tim did no more than any other State Police has done.He simply took his wife out for the evening,and some Barney Fife wanna be's just could not stand the fact that Tim knows how to have fun,nothing more nothing less. And than you have the media who should not have the right to print lies. Any one who knew Tim and I mean really knew him,knew that he loved being a State Trooper,and in my opinion they turned their backs on him over that buisness at Pikeville, I'm sure that he's not the only State Police to ever do anything wrong.But they could have suported him, gave his job back at home and he still might be with us. He just should not have been treated the way he got treated.Now his wife is left without a husband,and his daughter is left without a father. Happy now.

    It saddens me to read some of these comm.in the past because,now my husband is DEAD!He did not just get just get a slap on the wrist,the county att.of Pikeville must have realized after we weren't going to drop this we were in the right!I have always stood up for what I believed in,& I believed in my Tim,as for all of you that wanted a good show ,you might should have been at my house when I found my husband,the father of my daughter,Dead.I mean if you really are that viscous of a person i hope God as mercy on your soul,because I know he knew tim's heart,and only he has to judge him now,so tonight when all of you who doubted my husband,TIM MOORE,lay down to sleep,I only hope and pray that could see what happened to him on March 22,2009 because he wasn't home to be with his family due to a Barney Fife Officer who obviously don't know the laws,sleep well all,I LOVE YOU TIM, YOUR LOVING WIFE TRISH.Also the media lied and my husband's blood is on their hands

    They will continue to close ranks with their own just like they have always done. He'll walk scott-free or with a little slap on the wrist. Same ol same ol with the KSP. We need to stop coddling them and hold them accountable for what they do wrong. Give them a little power and they think they are above the law. Thats what happened in this situation. Nothing ever changes around here. maybe we should all have a job where when we mess up we get to stay home with pay. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Kudos to Bee stings comment as well!!!

    Let me start it this time. No he should not be acting like that. Yes he was wrong. But if he was so bad comming out of the concert, why did the police not get him there. Were they wanting to get a D.U.I arrest? If so they are in the wrong also. Thank the lord he was not driving. But if he had the officers would have been as much to blame if something happened, some person may have got hurt that had nothing to do with it. I think there is a big ego probelem with this on both sides...

    Tim Moore is a wonderful person and would do anything for anyone. Tim deserves all charges dropped so he can continue his life and doing what he loves best being a trooper...

    like they are going to do anything to SUPER TROOPER,if that were me I would still be in jail.

    He needs to be fired. A KSP Sgt. should not have put him self in that position. He makes all police look bad. Apparently someone had angered one of the gray gods. Nobody messes with the thin gray line. Didn’t a trooper just go to prison for hitting a car while he was drunk? Didn’t a trooper go to jail for harassing a female informant? What about the one who stole money from the drug task force? One just got off for killing a guy in handcuffs inside a jail. Maybe we need to disband this group and start over. Fayette mall security guards get in less trouble than these guys. You know this guy must have really been out of control and belligerent to have another cop arrest him. How come if I got arrested they won’t pay me? If you have reason to suspend someone why would you pay them?
