Local prosecutor awarded

A local prosecutor receives a historic and fairly new award in Alabama.

Longtime Russell County District Attorney, Ken Davis was given the "Joe Hubbard" White Hat Award in Hoover.

It's not an annual honor, but required a unanimous vote of the Alabama District Attorneys and considered a lifetime achievement award.

Davis has been the DA in Russell County for nearly 33 years.

This award goes to those who have pursued justice.

The Alabama District Attorneys Association calls Davis a "gentleman who fights evil every day."
