District 26

Ross represents Alabama Senate District 26, which includes part of Montgomery county[9].


Charges have been brought against Ross for allegedly participating in a conspiracy to buy and sell votes for a gambling bill. In a ruling made on July 28, U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson denied the defense's motions for a judgment of acquittal. He refused to throw out the charges in the case despite some reservations he has stated to have about the charges.[10]


Ross has two children and resides with his wife J. Kelley in Montgomery, Alabama.
