Circuit Judge Dan King being investigated, suspended

JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Circuit Judge Dan King is in trouble with the law.

King is charged with working as defense lawyer for convicted sex offender, Ronnie Ashford. Authorities say King then set aside the conviction so Ashford could live with and take care of his sick mom, who lives near a school.
Judge King has been suspended until the case is investigated.
