LEE COUNTY, Ala. (WTVM) - A sentencing date has been set in the case of Former Lee County District Attorney Brandon Hughes.

Hughes will find out how long he will spend behind bars on Tuesday, October 5.

Last week, Hughes filed a motion requesting to avoid jail time and serve his time in a community corrections program. That request was denied.
