Rocky Mount Man Indicted in State Trooper Extortion Case

Rocky Mount, VA - A Rocky Mount man charged with trying to extort a State Trooper has now been indicted.

Courtney Hall, 26, will stand trial for trying to force Master Trooper Tim Harris to give up $50,000.

The plot allegedly involves a woman both men know.

Police say Hall threatened to expose an alleged affair the Trooper was having with that woman.

A probable cause affidavit shows investigators do not believe the Trooper was having an affair.
