JEFFERSON COUNTY - AL -

Jefferson County's top county attorney, Jeff Sewell, is now on paid administrative leave.  ABC 33/40 has learned this administrative leave was instituted for multiple reasons. He was put on leave Monday morning by County Commission President, David Carrington.

This comes after sending the commission a memo stating it was in violation of the county manager law. Sewell threatened to leave last year if he didn't receive a pay raise. The commission gave him the additional money.
