BELLEVILLE, IL (KTVI) - An Illinois State trooper is convicted of a misdemeanor after a judge reviews the trooper's dash cam video.

Corey Alberson was accused of pulling down the pants of an innocent man during a 2012 traffic stop in East St. Louis.  Alberson contended the man and his car fit the description of a drug suspect.

The videotape surfaced after an Illinois State Police supervisor was conducting a routine review of dash cam video.  That supervisor felt the video warranted charges.

A judge who reviewed the video found Alberson guilty of aggravated assault.  He has been suspended without pay, and is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
