Here's what we're working on in the WAFF 48 newsroom:
Today, former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman is appealing for a new trial.
He wants to overturn his 2006 conviction on bribery and obstruction charges. He's also asking for a reduced sentence. We expect his lawyers to argue that the involvement of a U.S. attorney with ties to Republican politics tainted the trial.
Also, we have a great story of a citizen investigator. An Arab woman helped solved a burglary investigation in her neighborhood in less than 24 hours.
