MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A judge says indicted House Speaker Mike Hubbard has been given a sufficient summary of the evidence against him.

Lee County Circuit Judge Jacob Walker on Friday rejected a defense request for a more definite statement from prosecutors of how they allege Hubbard broke the law.

Walker says the plain language of the indictment and prosecutors’ court filings have provided adequate notice.

Hubbard faces 23 ethics charges accusing him of using his public offices to benefit his businesses.

He has pleaded not guilty. His trial was initially scheduled for October. Walker has tentatively delayed it until March.
