Woonsocket Call - - Region | Obituaries -

BOS­TON (AP) — The Mas­sachusetts State Po­lice sec­ond-in-com­mand is step­ping down af­ter the an­nounced de­par­ture of the agency's chief amid claims he or­dered a trooper to al­ter a po­lice re­port on the ar­rest of a judge's daugh­ter.

Spokesman David Pro­co­pio says Deputy Su­per­in­ten­dent Fran­cis Hughes re­tired Tues­day af­ter a 31-year ca­reer.

Hughes' res­ig­na­tion comes af­ter Col. Richard McKeon an­nounced his re­tire­ment Fri­day. Pro­co­pio says it's tra­di­tion for the deputy su­per­in­ten­dent to leave his or her po­si­tion when the su­per­in­ten­dent does.

Po­lice have de­fended ask­ing the trooper to al­ter the re­port.
