The Jefferson County Commission Tuesday voted to submit a petition to the U.S. attorney general’s office in Alabama seeking the “criminal forfeiture” of $1.61 million to the county in connection with the federal corruption case of former county commissioner Larry Langford, lobbyist Al LaPierre and Montgomery bond dealer Bill Blount.

The one-paragraph resolution did not explain how the petition process worked or if commissioners expected the federal judge overseeing the case to order additional forfeitures. As part of their convictions on pay-to-play charges centering on the restructuring of $3.2 billion of Jefferson County’s sewer bonds, the three men were ordered to forfeit a total of $1.61 million to the U.S. government.
