MONTGOMERY—In a Supplemental Brief in support of a sentencing recommendation filed Friday, the State is asking that disgraced former Speaker Mike Hubbard be ordered to pay, $1,125,000.00 in restitution for his criminal acts.
In July, Hubbard was convicted on 12 felony counts of public corruption, sentenced to four years hard time and sixteen years probation. The State had asked trial Judge Jacob Walker, III, to order restitution for Hubbard’s acts. However, Judge Walker said he couldn’t find statutory grounds for the State’s request, but allowed the State time to present additional case law.
