BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT- A state trooper in Connecticut pleaded guilty to robbing a dying crash victim of cash and jewelry.

Aaron Huntsman admits larceny and tampering with evidence under a law that means he does not agree with the state's case but concedes there is enough evidence to convict him.

Huntsman was caught on video from his cruiser's dash-cam stealing a gold chain and $3,700 from John Scalesse, who died in a motorcycle crash.

Huntsman faces 18-months in prison and was a 19 year veteran of the Connecticut State Police.
