Today's Siegelman hearing is over in Montgomery, and Judge Land will issue a written order later this week

Today's hearing in Montgomery for former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is over, and U.S. District Judge Clay Land is expected to release a written order regarding possible release later this week.

Siegelman is expected to stay in the Montgomery County Jail until the decision is reached.

If Siegelman is released, he would be free pending the outcome of a U.S. Eleventh Circuit hearing on his appeal, set for January 13.

Many thanks for this update, Roger! It was your original campaign on behalf of Don Siegleman that brought me to your site many years ago. As a recently-deceased friend of mine used to say, "The wheels of the gods grind slowly." Thanks to you and others who have faith in the ideal of justice--as opposed to the Kabuki Theatre versions of it embodied in such characters as Clarence Thomas--Mr. Siegleman has not been forgotten and abandoned.
