BATON ROUGE- Former Alcohol Tobacco Control commissioner Murphy Painter received a nearly $300,000 check from the state related to his resignation and bills from his legal case that followed.

Painter left the organization after an investigation in 2010 where inspectors were reviewing if he illegally used his position to run names in a database, essentially performing unwarranted background checks. Painter was exonerated of the charges.

This week, the state paid him $297,054.53.
