Jefferson County District Attorney Charles Todd Henderson, the first Democrat elected to the office in decades, Friday was convicted of perjury and removed from office. Prosecutors said Henderson lied under oath about whether he was having a romantic relationship with a woman during her divorce trial. Henderson was serving as a guardian ad litem for the couple's child. Henderson and the woman, Yareima Akl, have since married. Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, will appoint Henderson's successor.
