Fired police chief will not be reinstated
ENGLAND, AR – The England City Council has denied Herman Hutton’s appeal to be reinstated as England’s police chief.
Hutton was fired in September by Mayor Danny Maynard for “personnel reasons.” Hutton maintains that his termination was the result of religious discrimination.
The council met in executive session for more than an hour while hundreds of Hutton supporters awaited the decision.
Hutton says he plans to continue the fight to get his job back.
