Hubbard Loses Appeal On Ethics Conviction

An appeals court has upheld most of the convictions against former Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard for ethics violations. That includes accusations that he used his elected position to make money for his business. The court did throw out one count — finding that Hubbard did not have a conflict of interest when he voted on a budget bill. So, prison may getting closer for Hubbard. He was sentenced to four years — but he’s been free during his appeal.
