Who is Webster Hubbell?

Webster Lee "Webb" Hubbell, is an author, lecturer, consultant, and former Arkansas lawyer who practiced law from 1974-1993 in Pulaski County before serving as Mayor of Little Rock from 1979 until 1982—one of Little Rock's youngest mayors. He also served on Little Rock's City Board from 1978 -1984. He was appointed by Bill Clinton as Chief Justice of the Arkansas State Supreme Court in 1984. When Clinton became President, Hubbell was appointed as Associate Attorney General, which is the third highest ranking individual in the Justice Department.

In December 1994, Hubbell pleaded guilty to federal charges in connection with his billings at the Rose Law Firm, a firm with partners that once included Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster. Hubbell admitted he had overbilled some of his former clients and on June 28, 1995, Judge George Howard sentenced Hubbell to 21 months' imprisonment.
