Meth Judge Resigns

Judge resigns amid arrest on drug charges

CARROLLTON, Ala. (AP) -- A west Alabama judge has resigned nearly two weeks after he was arrested on drug charges in neighboring Columbus, Mississippi.

Former Pickens County District Judge Ira Colvin submitted his letter of resignation Monday to Circuit Judge James Moore, who oversees the 24th Judicial Circuit, which includes the county.

A copy of the resignation also was sent to Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Drayton Nabers.

Colvin was arrested August 14th and charged with possessing methamphetamine and materials used to manufacture the drug.

The former judge faces a similar charge in Pickens County after a grand jury recently indicted him after sheriff's investigators recovered meth from his office in Carrollton.According to spokesman, Gov. Bob Riley will appoint someone to fill the vacancy.

As my friend RH said, "I bet that speedy little fucker could zip through a court docket."
