Attorney General Steve Marshall Announces Arrest of Former
State Senator Zeb Little for Felony Theft of More Than $25,000
(MONTGOMERY) – Attorney General Steve Marshall announced that former state
senator Zeb Little, 50, of Cullman, was indicted* by a Cullman County grand jury on
three counts of felony theft of property. Little surrendered to the Cullman County
Sheriff’s Office yesterday and was released on a $15,000 bond.
Following an investigation by the Cullman Police Department and the Attorney
General’s Office, Attorney General Steve Marshall’s Criminal Trials Division presented
evidence to a Cullman County grand jury on February 11, resulting in the three-count
indictment. Specifically, the indictment charges Little, an attorney, with three counts of
first-degree theft of property for stealing a combined total of more than $25,000 of client
trust funds.
No further information about the investigation or about the defendant’s alleged crimes
other than that stated in the indictment may be released at this time.
If convicted, Little faces a potential penalty of two to 20 years on each theft of property
count. First-degree theft of property is a class B felony.
*An indictment is merely an accusation. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
