The former head of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency believes attorneys for former Gov. Robert Bentley are trying to use a court proceeding to gain inside knowledge of an ongoing criminal investigation possibly involving Bentley, according to a court filing.
The filing from Spencer Collier, the former ALEA secretary and current police chief in Selma, was in response to a proposed order from attorneys representing Bentley and Stan Stabler, who was Collier’s successor at ALEA. That filing sought to have a court order Collier to answer questions about his private conversations with representatives from the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, who were questioning Collier as part of an ongoing investigation.
