Alabama police chief suspended for visiting murderer
<![CDATA[GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) -- The Gadsden Civil Service Board has suspended Police Chief John Crane for visiting a convicted murderer in jail over the course of three years. The board voted Wednesday to suspend Crane for 15 days. Officials say he visited Justin Denson monthly in the Etowah County jail. Denson was sentenced to 119 years for killing his mother, Nita Denson, in 2009. He was also charged with fraudulent use of a credit card. Officials say Crane and Denson knew each other personally, and Crane visited Denson for religious reasons. Authorities say Crane also bought Denson a suit to wear to court, and put money in his commissary account. The Gadsden Times reports Michael Rasmussen, who represents Nita Denson's niece, asked the board to remove crane from his position as police chief.
