Judge Upholds Firing Of Campus Cop Who Sold Sex Toys

A judge is backing North Carolina Central University officials for firing a campus police officer after learning he sold sex toys out of the trunk of his patrol car while on duty.

The News and Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that a state administrative law judge this week upheld the university's decision to fire Lt. Michael Shaw last year.

Shaw admitted to selling the items to a female officer, but said it occurred during his break. He also said the items were not pornographic, his conduct was not illegal, and his dismissal was unwarranted.

Defense lawyer Mark Key of Lillington says his client will appeal. Key says Shaw sold items to officers who were his friends, not to students or faculty members.

    he used bad judgement selling out of the trunk of his state car. but selling at work has always happned and will. how many schools depended on parents selling "school junk" at work?

    Shame on him for making sales on the job, and using employer supplied equipment.n He earned the consequences.

      At place of employment is not technically the same as "on the job". Break time is personal time. I agree about the patrol car though.

        people have always sold things at work. always will. many schools depend on parents selling "school junk" at work, but i have to agree he did not use good judgement. selling out of the tunk of the state car was not a good move.
