Sentencing delayed for former Lee Co. district attorney
LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WTVM) - Former Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes will have to wait a little longer to be sentenced.
Tuesday’s sentencing was postponed due to a medical emergency involving a participant in the hearing.
Hughes was removed from office in June after the Alabama Attorney General’s Office indicted him on five ethics violations and perjury.
Last month, Hughes asked a judge to allow him to serve his sentence in a community corrections program.
We will let you know when a new sentencing date is set.
