UAB turns over Rep. Rogers' documents to FBI

State Representative John Rogers says the University of Alabama at Birmingham has given the FBI documents related to programs he oversees.

Rogers told The Birmingham News on Wednesday that UAB technicians showed up at his office and pulled at least a dozen hard drives off his computers. Rogers told The Associated Press
he's done nothing wrong.

Rogers' attorney, Doug Jones, says the FBI asked for a broad range of documents, some of which were related to Rogers' work. Jones says he's not worried about the inquiry.

Rogers is chairman of Alabama's Legislative Black Caucus and supervises minority training and development programs at UAB.

A UAB spokeswoman declined comment.
