MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A judge has scheduled a September hearing on motions filed in former House Speaker Mike Hubbard ethics case as Hubbard seeks to overturn his criminal conviction.

Circuit Judge Jacob Waller on Thursday scheduled a Sept. 2 hearing on post-trial motions filed in the case. The judge did not elaborate. A jury convicted Hubbard on 12 state ethics law violations. He was automatically removed from office after the felony conviction.

Hubbard, who is free on bond, has filed a request for a new trial. He is also asking for an investigation into whether some jurors were biased against him.

Walker sentenced Hubbard to four years in prison.
