RALEIGH, N.C. Gov. Mike Easley is not going to let a state trooper fired for having sex in his patrol car and at a patrol office return to the state Highway Patrol, regardless of what the courts say, a spokesman said late Sunday night.

"The governor is adamant that we're not going to give the badge of law enforcement officer to somebody with issues of moral turpitude," said a statement e-mailed by Easley spokesman Seth Effron. "Now that the judge has ruled, she can give that officer a job. But he won't be working for the state Highway Patrol as long as Governor Easley is in office."
