Ala. Senator's DUI Court Date Now Set For May

Birmingham, AL – State Senate Majority Leader Zeb Little's first court hearing on driving under the influence and other charges has been canceled.

The Cullman Democrat had originally been scheduled to be in Jefferson County District Court on Tuesday. Defense attorney Mark White said Monday the hearing was to determine if Little had an attorney, and the court has already been notified that he does.

Little's next court date is May 18, but that could be changed because that's the final day of the 2009 legislative session.

Little was arrested April 3 in Jefferson County. He was charged with drunken driving, failure to yield for an emergency vehicle, having an open container of alcohol in the car and having an expired driver's license.
