MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – A former Alabama sheriff who resigned during a state impeachment probe has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of lying to a bank about a loan that was used in part to pay off personal loans.

Court documents show former Clarke County Sheriff William Ray Norris pleaded guilty Monday to one count of making a false statement to Town County National Bank in Camden.

It concerned a $75,000 commercial loan he sought with a friend and business associate.

An attorney for Norris says the money involved has been paid back.

Norris resigned last year before an impeachment proceeding was set to begin over multiple alleged acts of malfeasance.
