Judge Decides Whether Hubbard Gets New Trial

No new trial. Former Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard will not get to try again in front of a different jury. He had asked for another trial, saying prosecutors made mistakes. But the judge said no. So now Hubbard, convicted of corruption, will have to appeal his conviction to a higher court. He was sentenced to four years in prison — but he’s not behind bars yet. He’s free on bond during the appeal process.
