Tools

TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) — The lawyer for the Tuscumbia police chief is asking for a new hearing on a 2011 drunken driving conviction.

Tony Logan was charged with a DUI in December 2009 after he authorities say he crashed his personal vehicle into his mailbox and hit his city-owned work car that was parked in his driveway. He was convicted in Municipal Court and appealed the conviction to Circuit Court. The case was moved to Etowah County because of the associated publicity, and he was convicted again in January 2011.

The TimesDaily of Florence (http://bit.ly/16PCvNE ) reports Logan's attorney Tim Case, is filing an application for a rehearing with the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals. Case wants the court to review issues regarding about 60 pretrial motions and objections that were made during the trial.
