    A Massachusetts State Police trooper who said he was forced to falsify records to protect a judge's daughter has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

    The Boston Globe reports State Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin wrote to Trooper Ryan Sceviour in a June 26 letter made public Thursday that he "acted appropriately" during the case involving the daughter of Dudley District Court Judge Timothy Bibaud.

    The letter was part of the settlement of Sceviour's lawsuit alleging he was ordered to delete embarrassing information about Alli Bibaud after she was arrested on charges of drunken driving and driving under the influence of drugs in October 2017.
