By Susan Britt
Alabama Political Reporter

OPELIKA—Judge Jacob Walker, III, officially filed Michael G. Hubbard’s sentence with Alacourt on Wednesday.

Hubbard was found guilty on 12 charges of using his office for personal gain on June 10. Judge Walker handed down his sentence on Hubbard for a total of 96 years, 21.5 month split sentence and 76.5 years probation. All but two of the sentences run concurrent to the others.

Judge Walker gave Hubbard a split sentence resulting in an actual 4 years confinement, 16 years probation and $220,000 in fines, plus other court costs. With this sentence, there is no early release for good behavior or chance of parole available.

He must do the whole 4 years in prison. The only question at this point is where he will serve his time?

Hubbard will receive 2 days in jail credit for his previous incarcerations after arrest, leaving him with a total of 1458 days of incarceration.

Hubbard is currently remains out on an appeals bond and his attorneys filed for a new trial last Friday.
