Phyllis Hanson, victims advocate for the Portland Police Department, was arreste
Phyllis Hanson, victims advocate for the Portland Police Department, was arrested on July 4 by South Portland police after a report of domestic violence at the house she shares with Pat Macleod. Hanson was charged with assault and criminal threatening with a dangerous weapon, but will only face a charge of criminal threatening next week in Portland District Court. Hanson was suspended from the department for seven days, and police chief Michael Chitwood says no further action can be taken until the criminal case is resolved. Sue Jones of Sexual Assault Services and Lois Reckett of the Family Crisis Shelter question whether Hanson should remain in her position as victims advocate. Details.
