Brewton attorney arrested

Local attorney Sarah Elizabeth “Sally” Stoddard was taken into custody today by Brewton Police officers. The attorney, who has practiced law in Brewton since 2009, is a suspect involved in illegal drug activity, according to officers at the scene.

No other details have been released by officials.

In an October 2003 edition of The Evergreen Courant, a report of Stoddard’s arrest in that city was made. In the arrest at that time Stoddard, who practiced law in Evergreen,  was charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance and was released on bond.

Subsequent reports said Stoddard’s license to practice law was suspended until the charges against her were dismissed in 2005.
