Paralyzed car thief wants parole

DENVER - A paralyzed Colorado car thief is asking to be released from prison, claiming he is no longer a threat.

Darrell Havens says keeping him in prison is extremely expensive and serves no purpose.

The Denver Post reports opponents of Havens' fourth request for an early medical parole release argue that his punishment is appropriate because he nearly ran over a police officer while stealing a car.
