UA System Trustee comments on UAB football and DOJ launches investigation of Alabama jail

Greetings from the FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison and I hope you're having a good week. Here are some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

UA System BOT on UAB

UAB football is back, but is the University of Alabama Board of Trustees (often vilified by #FreeUAB) really happy about this and will they do anything to support it? Josh Gauntt has the first reaction from a UA Board of Trustee member tonight at 9.

DOJ investigating in Jefferson County
  
And new at 10 we're working tonight to get more information on the announcement late this afternoon that the Department of Justice investigation is investigating how juvenile offenders are treated inside the Jefferson County Jail. The DOJ says it has gotten allegations some juveniles are housed with adult offenders and some may have been sexually abused. Sherea Harris is working that story for us tonight and she'll have what we know at 10.
Those stories and more beginning at 9 on FOX6 News. I hope you'll watch us on air, online at MyFoxAl.com or in the WBRC News app by clicking "Live Newscasts."
