City of Selma ordered to return money

SELMA, Ala. (AP) - The city of Selma has been ordered to pay $8,600 to two men convicted of selling drugs and their attorney, which could pinch the police department's budget.

Bruce Maddox, a lawyer representing Aaron Harris and Desi Beavers, said the city waited too late to file papers in circuit court asking that it be allowed to take the defendants' cash and vehicles as a forfeiture.

Mayor George Evans is expected to review the issue Tuesday with the city council.

The city could be cited for contempt of court if it does not pay $2,500 each to Harris and Beavers and $3,600 to their lawyer.

The defendants were convicted in cases going back to July 2006 and the order to return the property was issued in October 2007.
