Worley still awaiting trial
The Montgomery Advertiser reports: More than five years have passed since a grand jury indicted former Secretary of State Nancy Worley, and she's still waiting to find out when she will be tried and on what charges.
The prominent Democrat could face simple misdemeanor charges or more serious felony charges over her 2006 re-election campaign. The decision is up to the all-Republican Alabama Supreme Court. ...
The case stems from Worley’s unsuccessful re-election campaign in 2006. During the campaign, she sent five employees in the secretary of state’s office a campaign letter, campaign contribution envelope and bumper sticker.
In March 2007, then-Attorney General Troy King got a Montgomery County grand jury to indict her on five felonies and five misdemeanors. The five felonies accused her of violating state law by using her official position to influence the vote of another person. The five misdemeanor charges accused her of violating a state law against public officials seeking campaign donations from their public employees. -- Read the whole story --> Worley still waiting for trial: Former Alabama Secretary of State was indicted in 2007 | The Montgomery Advertiser | montgomeryadvertiser.com
