Board OKs council man's candidacy

Candidate pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter in case of mother's death


Wednesday, July 10, 2012 —

During the hearing, Canupp, who had been diagnosed with chronic paraonid schizophrenia, entered an Alford plea, which allowed him to be released from state custody. According to the Legal Information Institute, the Alford plea allows a defendant to accept the ramifications of a guilty verdict without admitting to committing the crime.

Canupp was given credit for 4,501 days of confinement, during which time he spent more than 12 years in Broughton and Dorthea Dix mental hospitals.

He has also been convicted of indecent exposure, assault, assault on a female, larceny of a motor vehicle, worthless check, felony breaking and entering, and escaping from prison.

Canupp will appear on the Sept. 10 ballot for the Democratic Primary as he is currently being challenged by John R. (Jack) Bell.

  • Doug Creamer Friends and contentment

    Last week I made my annual trip up the mountain to Sparta. My friends have a secluded home near a babbling brook. Their home and property are a haven for peace. It’s a two-plus hour ride to their home that doesn’t feel that long because I look so forward to my time with this great couple. When I arrive, the conversation seems to pick up right where we left it the last time we saw each other.
