Maddox, who practices law in Mobile, said she has been a criminal defense attorney for almost 20 years and has taught constitutional law. ...

Maddox, in an email to the Advertiser, wrote that she filed paperwork Monday to name her campaign committee and filed a statement of economic interest with the Alabama Ethics Commission.
