ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - A former Virginia State Police trooper has been found not guilty on multiple charges.

Derrick Thompson was charged last year with three felonies, including rape.

After a trial last week, a Charlotte County jury acquitted him of all charges.

He was previously assigned to the Area 23 Office in 2011, which includes Charlotte and Halifax counties.
