State Wants 3 Years in Jail for Ousted Alabama Sheriff
The state attorney general’s office says Former Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely also should be required to pay $14,000 in fines and restitution.
They also say he should serve two years on probation following his release from custody.
The sentencing recommendation came in a request filed Monday by the state. The defense has yet to make its recommendations. A sentencing hearing is set for Friday in Athens. Blakely was convicted of theft and ethics violations earlier this month.
