Early on Wednesday morning, Pell City attorney William “Van” Davis died. He was age 66. Davis was the longtime District Attorney for both St. Clair and Blount Counties, later the two jurisdictions were split and he became the DA in just St. Clair County.

After Davis had retired and was in private practice in Pell City, he reentered public service as acting Attorney General in the matter of the investigation into then-Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard, R-Auburn. AG Luther Strange recused himself. It was Van Davis that made the decision that there was enough evidence to indict Hubbard. Davis acted as lead prosecutor in the trial in Lee County.

When Davis decided not to run for re-election as DA, the people of St. Clair County elected his Assistant District Attorney Richard Minor (R) as DA. Today, Richard Minor is a judge on the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals.
