Sue how can u say she is a liar? Where you there?And this suit is not about the case it is about how the case was handled by a PAID TOWN DEPT and most of all it's head! If you can not do your job with out family ties holding you back you should not handle this and should have been handed to the assit. chief. Chief Donovan knew better and worried more about his wife's family looking bad. Well boy does his wife's FAMILY look bad, bro in jail and husband with a long hard working career stained with more dirt from her bro. The bro who, Let us not forget,victim was his NEICE.

This is just terrific news! Its like an early Xmas gift. Its about time the "law" caught up with the so called "Law" in Tewksbury. This girl had problems, yes., But no one should be treated like she was in every aspect. Can you imagine what she was up against and helpless she felt? I know Al Donovan and I am privy to how he operates. He is an embarrassment to the community and the police department. What goes around comes around and it has come around for Al, but as we see in most complaints against the police, someone will find a way to let him off the hook. Lets just hope that when this young lady wins this settlement, that Al Donovan is held accountable personally.

I thought there was a recorded tape conversation and a recorded confession and a confession to the Police Department backing up her story. That sounds like pretty good evidence to me.

What does his wife have to do with it? I know her she a good person and nice family. The girl that did the accusing was a conman and has done the same thing to many people including doctors and other people but it wasn't allowed to be presented in court. She is the one who went around and will come around sometime in her life
