Appeals court reinstates charges against Worley

•  Court News     updated  2011/05/28 13:00

A state appeals court has reinstated five felony charges against former Secretary of State Nancy Worley for a second time.

The Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals issued a 4-0 ruling Friday. The charges accuse the former Democratic officeholder of violating election laws during her unsuccessful campaign for re-election in 2006. Her attorney, James Anderson, says he will ask the court to reconsider.

The charges resulted from an investigation by the attorney general. They were originally thrown out by a Montgomery judge. Then the Court of Criminal Appeals reinstated them. The Alabama Supreme Court reversed that ruling in September and told the appeals court to take another look.

The appeals court ruled Friday that prosecutors presented sufficient evidence to support the felony charges.
