MONTGOMERY—In the most recent filing by convicted felon and former Speaker of the House, Mike Hubbard, he continues to accuse Judge Jacob Walker, III, of not doing his job. Hubbard asks the court for an acquittal, a new trial and other relief, citing Judge Walker allowing former Ethics Director, Jim Sumner, to testify as an expert witness, as grounds for the motion.
The motion states, “Hubbard requests a new trial under Rule 24.1(c)(2), because the State improperly presented putatively ‘expert’ testimony from witness Sumner about the meaning, purpose, and application of the laws under which Hubbard was charged.”
