BAY MINETTE - Baldwin County's district attorney-elect is being paid $10,000 a month to study the county's backlog of cases even though the incumbent has the job until January, an arrangement that one judge in the county calls unethical.

I think the new DA should study the case backlog but at his expense. The Gang of Four + One (County Attorney) strikes again.

Why have the rape charges against AJ Mcgowan of Daphne taken 4 years to go to court? I know there are a lot of criminals in Alabama but 4 years!!

Most of all cases take 4+ years in Baldwin if your fighting it. See its a method of getting more plea deals by causing people stress over a long period of time. Some people would rather make a deal then keep living with uncertainty about the future. The local government also knows that if your unable to bail out and you have to wait in jail, your much more likely to take the plea deal if it gives you a end in sight.

Is it true that Jeff Sessions, as US Attorney quashed investigations of corrupt Baldwin law enforcement? If so why is he on the Judiciary Committee now? So he can quash more?
