A Calhoun County grand jury filed an indictment Jan. 22 in which Ben Little is charged with voting on city legislation in which he knew he had a conflict of interest and on a matter in which he had a financial interest.

Little is scheduled to appear in court for arraignment March 14.

While Little has not made comments directly to the media, his Facebook page has several posts claiming the indictment is an attempt to silence him by his critics and includes attacks on the Anniston Star, the local city newspaper.

This is one of the reason they want to shut me up… Pay attention!!! This is where your tax paying dollars are going….
