Mike Hubbard's Attorneys Appeal His 2016 Ethics Conviction

Attorneys for former Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard have appealed his 2016 ethics convictions with the state supreme court. 

   Al.com reported Hubbard's lawyers say prosecutors expanded the definition of Alabama's ethics law on illegal conduct.

 Hubbard was convicted in Lee County of 12 of 23 felony ethics charges and was sentenced to four years in prison. He's been free while appealing.

 His lawyers say there is no proof he violated any law. But prosecutors say Hubbard used his political position to acquire lucrative contracts for his company, the Auburn Network, and to obtain investments for the financially strapped Craftmaster Printers, where he was part owner.

 The Attorney General's Office had no comment. But earlier this month, Attorney General Steve Marshall said he's confident the convictions will be upheld.
