Police Chief Faces Conspiracy Count

Cross City, FL (11/91) - Charges of conspiracy to commit perjury have been lodged against the Cross City police chief and a state correctional officer who are accused of arranging for a man to impersonate an inmate during hearings of prison brutality charges.

The impostor posed as a prisoner who had brought brutality allegations. He testified under oath that the beating never took place.

Police Chief Tommy Lee Carter, 46, and Department of Corrections Lt. David Leslie Sanders, 35, were arrested Tuesday by Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents and charged with one count of conspiracy to commit perjury and three counts of paying another person to commit perjury.
