Mike Hubbard’s political career appears to be over.
The former Alabama House Speaker faces sentencing next month after being convicted on 12 of the 23 felony ethics charges. APR’s MacKenzie Bates was at the Lee County Courthouse and files this report.
Hubbard’s defense attorney put his arm around him as the verdicts were read one by one convicting him of using his political office for personal gain.
Hubbard maintained his innocence throughout the indictments, saying the transactions that were made fell within the state ethics law.
