MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama court that hears complaints
against judges is weighing ethics counts against Hale County
Circuit Judge Marvin Wiggins.
The Alabama Court of the Judiciary began deliberating the case
about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday in Montgomery.
The court expects to announce a decision Thursday.
The Judicial Inquiry Commission accused Wiggins of violating the
ethical rules for judges by not stepping aside from a voter fraud
investigation in west Alabama that involved three relatives.
The judge's attorney, Lewis Gillis, told the court that Wiggins
did not intentionally violate the rules.
