MONTGOMERY, Ala. (EETV)- The Attorney General's office filed a brief Monday with the Alabama Supreme Court, responding to former House Speaker and Auburn-area Representative Mike Hubbard’s appeal of his 11 felony ethics convictions.  

Attorney General Steve Marshall argued the legal questions in this case are straightforward, and the evidence is plainly sufficient to support each of Mike Hubbard’s 11 convictions.

“Alabama’s Ethics Law helps prohibit conflicts of interest and promote Alabamians’ confidence in the integrity of their government,” said Marshall.  “As we explained in our brief, Mike Hubbard repeatedly violated those laws, and his convictions should be affirmed.”

Hubbard will now be given 14 days to file a reply brief, and the Alabama Supreme Court will determine whether to schedule oral argument or decide the case based solely on the briefs.
