FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A man picked by Governor Dunleavy to serve on a compensation board for crime victims is being haunted by his history of searching for paranormal activity.

AP reports that during a confirmation hearing Wednesday, John Francis was called upon by Republican Senator Lora Reinbold of Eagle River who asked Francis if he believes in the Paranormal.
Francis described setting up recorders in people's homes during investigations, and stated he believed Jesus rose from the dead.
He also said he was surprised how much attention ghost hunting has had compared to his past criminal activity.
He claims he has since turned his life around, and supports victim's rights.
Senator Reinbold stated she would not support Francis' nomination.
