Court documents show that 58-year-old Will Culver, a Huntsville city councilman accused of driving under the influence, has been expunged.
A judge in Huntsville signed the order late last month dismissing the charges against Culver.
He was arrested April 22 and was charged with driving under the influence, driving on the wrong side of the road, failure to signal and improper lane usage. His trial was scheduled in September but was delayed until January 25.
Culver is a former Huntsville police officer and chief city magistrate. He was elected to Huntsville City Council in 2008 and was council president one year in 2015-2016.
People in Huntsville had questions about Culver's expungement, so we took them to a Huntsville DUI Attorney. Russell Crumbley said he's handled about 8,000 DUI cases in the last two decades.
"As it relates to him being a public figure, I 100% believe he did not get favorable treatment. Our system here in Huntsville does not work that way," Crumbley said.
Crumbley explained he didn't know the specifics to Culver's case because he's not his attorney, however, he said Culver's treatment was anything but special.
"The treatment he got is very consistent for the treatment we got for thousands of people right here in this community," Crumbley added.
We reached out to Culver's attorney to see if he had any comment on the case. We are still waiting to hear back from him as of Wednesday evening.
