Former Jeffco commissioner faces deadline on medical appeal

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The deadline looms for former Jefferson County Commissioner Chris McNair to turn over his medical records to the court system. It is his last plea to stay out of jail.  

On Monday, McNair must submit medical papers to support his claims of being too ill to serve his sentence. He has already been granted a one-week extension to wait on test results and to gather necessary records.     

McNair is 85-years-old and his health is declining.
