Al Sharpton’s half-brother challenges capital murder charge

DOTHAN, Ala. – The Rev. Al Sharpton’s half-brother is facing a capital murder charge in the state of Alabama, and he is a challenge that charge in court.

Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish, said ds. Kenneth Glasgow drove the 26-year-old Jamie Townes around in search of his stolen car before Townes allegedly shot 23-year-old Breunia Jennings, believe she was the thief. In Alabama, a person abetting a crime is also liable.

But Glasgow said that he is not responsible for what his passenger did after he drove the man around.

The Dothan Eagle reports that Glasgow repeatedly asked a judge on Tuesday why should he be put to death for “what someone else is doing.”

Glasgow established a homeless ministry and has worked to restore voting rights to ex-convicts after serving time for a drug conviction.
