Disbarred Jasper attorney faces new charges


JASPER, Ala. (AP) — Disbarred Jasper attorney Garve Ivey Jr. faces new charges.

Attorney General Luther Strange said Wednesday that a Walker County grand jury indicted Ivey on two counts of first-degree theft of a check or currency valued at more than $2,500.

That's in addition to his February 2012 indictment on ten counts of first-degree theft of a check or currency exceeding $2,500 and one count of second-degree theft involving $500 to $2,500. That Alabama State Bar Association disbarred Ivey after his indictment last year.

A defense attorney for Ivey was out of the office Wednesday and did not return a message seeking comment.

Ivey was sentenced to 30 days in jail in 2000 for his role in an ex-prostitute's false accusations against Lt. Gov. Steve Windom. The misdemeanor conviction was later reversed.
