Deputy AG Seeks Independent Investigation

A deputy state attorney general is asking for the appointment of an independent investigation into accusations that he interfered with a public corruption investigation.

Deputy Attorney General Sonny Reagan sent a letter Monday to his boss, Attorney General Luther Strange, saying he did nothing wrong.

Reagan asked for Strange or Gov. Robert Bentley to appoint an independent person to look into the accusations against him as well as a misconduct complaint Reagan previously filed against Matt Hart, who’s a key prosecutor in the corruption probe.

Reagan says the investigation into his complaint should not be stopped.

Van Davis, the acting attorney general in the corruption probe, said last week that Reagan tried to obstruct the investigation. Reagan was placed on administrative leave last week.
