AL legislator convicted of bribery takes job at ABC store
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former legislator, who pleaded guilty to taking bribes from a state lobbyist, is working as a sales clerk at a state liquor store.
The Dothan Eagle (http://bit.ly/2hsPIoX ) reports that Terry Spicer took the job with the Alabama Beverage Control Board.
An ABC Board attorney told the newspaper that ABC Board Administrator Mac Gipson received a call from a mutual friend asking for help in finding Spicer a job.
Martin said Spicer properly disclosed his status as an ex-felon when applying.
Spicer, a former school superintendent and two-year college employee, needs another year and four months of state employment to be able to draw his $50,000 state pension.
Spicer pleaded guilty in 2011 to taking cash and a ski vacation from a state lobbyist.
He was released in October.
