Mike Hubbard takes the stand Alabama Speaker Mike Hubbard Trial on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 in Opelika, Ala. Todd J. Van Emst/Opelika-Auburn News/PoolFormer Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard is seeking a new trial, saying that prosecutors stretched the intent of the state ethics law when securing convictions against him.

Attorneys for Hubbard filed the request Monday asking a judge to reverse Hubbard’s conviction or grant a new trial.

A jury in June convicted Hubbard on 12 felony ethics charges. Prosecutors accused him of improperly soliciting investments, work and business advice from company officials and of using his office to benefit his clients.

Hubbard maintains the transactions were legitimate. He said, for example, that investors in his printing company got a full value return on their investment.

Lawyers for Hubbard also said the former Alabama Ethics Commission director was improperly allowed to give broad interpretations of the law as an expert witness.
