Otto P. Higgins Inmate File: Tierney Parole Recommendation


Letter from Monsignor M. D. Tierney of Annunciation Parish regarding the parole of Otto P. Higgins, Inmate #55996-L. Monisgnor Tierney believes Higgins resolves to lead a better life, and writes that as his pastor, "it is natural that I should plead for one of my flock and most especially for one who has strayed from the fold." Higgins, the former director of the Kansas City Police Department, was sentenced to two years in the United States Penitentiary at Leavenworth on charges of income tax evasion.
