MONTGOMERY—Almost two years after his indictment, Michael G. Hubbard was convicted and sentenced to 96 years, with a split sentence of 4 years in State prison, with no “good time” or chance of parole, and 16 years supervised probation. Judge Jacob Walker, III, also ordered Hubbard to pay fines equaling $210, 000 plus other court costs.
The State asked the Court to require Hubbard to pay $1,125,000.00 in restitution. Judge Walker denied the State’s request saying, there no case law showing the State as victim. However, he gave the State 30 days to show case law where a state is considered a victim.
