Gary Lynn Weeks was convicted earlier this week in Lauderdale County of an assault against an Alabama state trooper. The Florence man represented himself during the trial and his conviction was surprising considering his defense logic. The 54 year old Weeks stated: “…if (the troopers) had just stopped chasing me into Tennessee, we wouldn’t be here today.”
It’s hard to believe a jury found him guilty.
Weeks has seven prior felony convictions and could possibly be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.
