Governor Robert Bentley named Steve Marshall as the state’s new Attorney General. Steve has been District Attorney for Marshall County since 2001 and has a strong background in law enforcement. He has done a tremendous job in his role as District Attorney and is universally respected by his peers in the law enforcement community.
Steve also frankly addressed the issue of the potential impeachment investigation of Gov. Bentley. At the time, he said he did not have confirmation that the governor was under investigation. However, just two days after being sworn in, on Feb. 15 Steve confirmed there is an ongoing investigation and he correctly recused himself. He appointed former Montgomery County District Attorney Ellen Brooks to lead the investigation.
Steve Marshall is the 48th Attorney General of the State of Alabama. It’s good to have an experienced District Attorney in the most important office. I predict that Steve will be an outstanding Attorney General.
