Man sentenced for attacking Alabama judge to appeal

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - A court official says an Eva man convicted of attacking a Limestone County judge at a Hartselle soccer game plans to appeal.

William "Cliff" Sanders was convicted Friday of third-degree
assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct following a
bench trial in Morgan County District Court with appointed Circuit
Judge Eddie Hardaway.

He received a 180-day jail sentence and fines totaling $1,000
plus court costs.

He was accused of assaulting Limestone County Circuit Judge Bob
Baker on March 27, 2008, while Baker was watching his daughter play
in a soccer match between Athens and Brewer at the Brewer High
stadium.

Sanders was sentenced to serve the 180 days in the Morgan County
Jail.

He was not jailed because he intends to appeal the verdict to the Morgan County Circuit Court.
