Supreme Court denies appeal

The Supreme Court of Alabama has denied a request by former Covington County Probate Judge Sherrie Phillips to hear an appeal of her criminal conviction for the felony theft and ethics charges.

Her appellate bond requires her to surrender to the county sheriff within 15 days. Last November, she was sentenced to two concurrent sentences of 10 years, which were split for her to serve three years incarceration followed by three years of supervised probation.
