Corrections & Clarifications
Owing to an error in translation of a previously published story in Bajo El Sol, the English version in Saturday’s edition of the Yuma Sun incorrectly quoted Somerton Police Chief Jeffery Cavender’s comments regarding a lawsuit filed against him while he served as police chief of Momence, Ill. The correct statement was: “I can tell you, though, that the City of Somerton officials are aware of this civil action, and that I made a full disclosure to them during my hiring and background process.”
Also, the Yuma Sun story said police Capt. Michelle Magana had been placed on administrative suspension, but Cavender said Magana was in fact placed on administrative leave.
