HACKENSACK - The jury in the trial of Hackensack Police Chief Ken Zisa deliberated for three hours today.

Deliberations will continue on Tuesday.

Zisa was suspended without pay in 2010 after being charged with official misconduct and insurance fraud. Prosecutors say he removed his girlfriend from the scene of a 2008 accident in which she was suspected of being intoxicated, then filed false information in an insurance claim.

The chief's also accused of covering up an investigation stemming from a 2004 assault and robbery in which his girlfriend's sons were suspects.

But Zisa's attorney claims the case is based on lies and was brought as a political favor to Zisa's enemies.
