OZARK, Ala. (AP) - A southeast Alabama judge is retiring after three decades on the bench.

Dale County District Court Judge Fred Steagall says he won’t seek re-election. The Dothan Eagle reports (bit.ly/1ToMHq2) Steagall chose not to qualify with the Democratic Party last fall, but had been considering running for another term as an independent.

The judge said in a prepared statement he had decided that “it’s time to move on, probably to second career.”

Steagall has served five terms as a judge in Dale County, with each term lasting six years.
