State Rep. Randy Davis, a Republican from Daphne, and former state Republican Party Chairman Marty Connors are seeking to have their indictments dismissed by the federal courts on claims that prosecutors engaged in misconduct during the grand jury hearings.
Davis and Connors were indicted on federal bribery charges in July. In a filing Tuesday, Davis’ attorney asked the court to dismiss an indictment against Davis, Connors and G. Ford Gilbert, another man indicted in the same case related to charges that the three conspired to force insurers to cover treatments at health clinics in which they had a financial stake.
Davis’ attorney claims that federal prosecutors made up prejudicial statements to the grand jury and altered a transcript of grand jury proceedings in order to cover up the alleged prejudicial statements.
