TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Tuscaloosa County's circuit judges and prosecutors say they are withdrawing from sex abuse cases brought against the county's former corrections director.
Dan Boisot was charged with sodomy, sexual abuse and extortion last September in cases involving four alleged victims. He has yet to be arraigned in the case.
The Tuscaloosa News reports (http://bit.ly/Mr7uUL ) that all four county judges and the district attorney's office have now recused themselves from all proceedings involving Boisot, with whom they had a close working relationship.
Walker County Circuit Judge Hoyt Elliot has been assigned to the case, which will be prosecuted by a unit of the Alabama Office of Prosecution Service in Montgomery.
Boisot's attorney, Jonathan Cross, declined to comment on the case.
