Even after Hayes admitted to violating 10 different parts of the state’s judicial conduct code he wasn’t fired. Instead, the judicial commission and Hayes reached a deal: An 11-month unpaid suspension before returning to the bench 5/7 https://t.co/gJ1ypOQ4gp

In 2016, the state agency that oversees judges charged Hayes with violating Alabama’s code of judicial conduct. Hayes broke state and federal laws by jailing Johnson and hundreds of other Montgomery residents too poor to pay fines https://t.co/xLrdZNlPh4 4/7 https://t.co/PSjqPjpd3o

Judge Les Hayes once sentenced a single mother to 496 days behind bars for failing to pay traffic tickets. The sentence was so stiff it exceeded the jail time Alabama allows for negligent homicide https://t.co/FUWE8CSyVG 1/7 https://t.co/0YbGiXG1R3

The heat was already suffocating when Mohammad Aamir Khan woke up in his tiny, windowless room with only a sheer curtain for a door. He offered a brief prayer and headed down the narrow stairs.
