Former Police Officer Sentenced for Sex Crimes


By Molly Clifton

A former Alexander City police officer who pleaded guilty to sex crimes is now sentenced.

The district attorney's office says Michael Ford was sentenced to 89 years behind bars.

In October, prosecutors say Ford pleaded guilty to incest, sexual abuse of a child younger than 12 and sodomy.

He also pleaded guilty to theft and tampering with evidence.

Ford was arrested back in February.
