Investigation into former Gov. Bentley and other concludes without further charges

Former Alabama Governor Robert Bentley

Supernumerary District Attorney Ellen Brooks announced the conclusion of the investigation into former Governor Robert Bentley and others.

No new charges were filed.

Bentley resigned as Governor of Alabama in April of 2016 after he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor campaign violations. A Montgomery Judge found Bentley guilty of two charges: failing to file a contribution report and knowingly converting campaign contributions to personal use. He was sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation, though the judge agreed to terminate the probation early if plea requirements are met. Bentley also agreed to perform 100 hours of community service as a physician.
