MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The Alabama Supreme Court has upheld a decision removing a probate judge from office who was accused of racist and sexually inappropriate behavior.

Justices unanimously upheld the 2021 decision by the Court of the Judiciary to remove Randy Jinks as Talladega County probate judge.

Justices wrote that Jinks had a pattern of inappropriate behavior.

Amanda Hardy, an attorney representing Jinks, issued a statement saying they respect the decision.

But she added they believe the judgment was inconsistent with the evidence presented at trial.
