ALBUGLE, LLC has learned on April 14th, 2021, Michael Enrique Hernandez, who is 24 years of age and has an Auburn, AL address, was arrested for Use of Position for Personal Gain.
At the time of the violation, Hernandez was an employee of the City of Lanett. It is unclear if he is still employed there, at the time of this report. From talking with some City of Lanett Employees, it is unclear what position Hernandez held at the City of Lanett, other than it is understood he reported directly to the Mayor.
Hernandez’s arrest was made after an investigation by the State Bureau of Investigations. Hernandez was booked into the Chambers County Jail. We have no information on his bond status.
This is the 6th individual affiliated with the City of Lanett who has had ethic issues in the past few months.
Of these, three individuals had minor Ethics Laws violations that was settled administratively and paid fines to the Alabama Ethics Commission. Two others are on bond awaiting trial, and as we said earlier, the bond status is unknown on Hernandez.
As always, all of the arrested are innocent until proven guilty in the Court of Law.
