At the sentencing hearing for former Republican State Rep. Micky Hammon, U.S. Federal Judge Myron Thompson denied the government’s request that Hammon only receive probation for stealing over $50,000 from campaign contributions.
Alabama Political Reporter has learned that Hammon’s troubles may not have ended with the federal prosecution’s slap on the hand. Signs within the state’s justice community appear to show that while federal prosecutors failed to follow through on bigger issues facing Hammon, the state will not.
