JeffCo Judge Mac Parsons retires

BIRMINGHAM (WBRC) - Around 70 people turned out to say goodbye to retiring Jefferson County Circuit Judge Douglas "Mac" MacArthur Parsons Thursday.

Parsons was a state senator from Hueytown and was known for his dry sense of humor.

He says he doesn't know what he will do next, but he plans to do something to serve the people.

Parsons ran for the Alabama Supreme Court in November, but the lifelong democrat lost the election.
