Anniston City Councilor Ben Little indicted

ANNISTON, AL (WBRC) -Anniston council member Ben Little has been indicted on ethics charges. Little represents Ward Three.

He turned himself in Monday night to the Calhoun County Jail on a two count indictment, according to Calhoun County Sheriff Matthew Wade.

Count one alleges a conflict of interest with a vote he made on the council and count two alleges a financial conflict of interest.

In 2017, the city council voted to abate a list of vehicles that were inoperable and sitting in yards. Little owned several of them, and a church where he serves as pastor owned a van.

Instead of abstaining from the vote, Little voted no.

Little faces up to 20 years if convicted. He was released on bond.
