Madison County DA praises new state attorney general

Madison County DA praises new state attorney general

Longtime district attorney Steve Marshall has been appointed as Alabama attorney general.

Marshall was involved in passing laws to put ephedrine products behind pharmacy counters and allow prosecution when fetuses are killed during a crime, according to the Associated Press.

The state's new Attorney General, Steve Marshall, plans to hold a news conference this morning in Montgomery.

Marshall said he would have walked away if the subject had been brought up. He interviewed a number of candidates, including Sen. Tom Whatley and state Sen. I appreciate him listening, and we had a very good conversation about that today. Marshall has served as the district attorney in Marshall County in north Alabama, appointed to the post in 2001 and re-elected three times.

Marshall is an Albertville native and former District Attorney for the 27th Judicial Circuit. Cam Ward; state Sen.

Bentley faced scrutiny over his decision to appoint odd to the U.S. Senate from national and state media outlets on Thursday.

In early November, Strange, then attorney general, wrote the committee recommending they cease their investigation, saying it could "intersect" with "necessary related work" work of his office.

Broussard said that he believes that if Marshall senses any kind of moral or ethical conflict with the Bentley investigation, he'll likely recuse himself and appoint someone else to lead the investigation. "The time spent working alongside law enforcement for the last 20 years has been a remarkable privilege".

Mr. Marshall is a past President of the Alabama District Attorney's Association and has served as Commission Chairman of the Alabama Criminal Justice Information Center, a member of the Alabama Sentencing Commission, board member of the National District Attorney's Association and Kids to Love Foundation, and a Member of the United States Attorney's Law Enforcement Coordinating Committee for the Northern District of Alabama.
